Hi Chris, not too sure on the top one, type of hebe maybe, someone on here will tell you for definite.  Bottom one is a type of Sedum, bees and butterflies love them, flowers in late summer/autumn.

top one looks like a rhodoendron, the bottom one looks like a sedum of some sort

Azalea for the top one?

I'm with you Rodgy-dodge. Rhodo and sedum.

I'd go with azalea and sedum

mmmmm I always think Azalea flowers tend to be more clumped together and if you look at the dispensed flower head it looks more like a Rhodii. Also the leaves look quite large and leathery! I may be wrong!

How do you differentiate a Rhodii from an Azalea? It looks a bit mildewed too! or in need of a good feed

I agree with above, but judging by the whitish leaves on the rhodo, it looks like it needs a tonic of some sort.
