Can anyone help identify these plants? They were already in the garden when I moved in and I haven't been able to find out what they are.

2 and 2a Ribes, Flowering  Currants as siad.

4 Viburnum davidii

1 could be a Lonicera nitida.

Do wish the site would allow the pictures to display larger.

I think that Vibunum is tinus.

The last, the hebe could be Red Ace but there are several similar.

The first could be Lonicera pileata as Berghill suggests but is too small for me.

Sorry, that's Red Edge, not Red Ace,

Pic 4 could be hebe pagei

Again, the inability to enlarge the pictures makes life very hard, especially when one's eyesight is not as good as it was (and it never was that good!).

Thank you all. So much easier to confirm on RHS plant finder if there's an indication of the name. Pictures not all that great either for some but the flowering currant definitely spot on. Now I know why this year's flowers are somewhat lacking. Have to get a picture on 1 again if it flowers. Number 4 is a hebe. Picture 3 not a viburnum davidii (although i do have this too - forgot to post the picture!). A picture of a tinus does look similar though.

Summarising the combined knowledge of the above:-

1. lonicera nitida... green version, not baggenson's gold

2 and 3. flowering currant... Ribes

4. viburnam tinus

5. hebe, possibly red edge
