Hello me again! Just taken a few photos of some more shrubs, in the hope that someone can help me identify them. If you click on the photos, they should enlarge. One of the photos is a bit sketchy so i'll try and take another and post it up later. Many thanks.

the third one looks like a rock rose.

Third is helianthemum, can't get a really clear picture of the other two, sorry.

The first is a rather sad looking conifer.

I can't get the pics to enlarge when I click on them so can't see them very clearly.  Is th 2nd one a spiraea bridal wreath?

1: Conifer

2: Some type of Cotoneaster.

3: helianthemum (rock rose). Possibly  'Ben Ledi'

I think it is Chamaecyparis lawsoniana Fleckellwood, which is variegated.

Variegated conifers look sad to me blairs. Sorry

I tend to agree, variegated palms can look even worse IMHO (and they tend to be worth a lot)

nutcutlet

Variegated palms have passed me by but sound most unattractive

I love playing this game - I look at all the plants, guess what I think they might be if I can, and then check the other answers and agree with them!!!  Edd, I have to say that picture two does look very like a cotoneaster we had growing over our door in the Peak District - it had, if I remember rightly, pink flowers, followed by orangey red berries and a very tight habit.  The other two??  Not a clue

star gaze lily

Yes on looking again, I've s' stretched' the pic out (for some reason clicking on it isn't working at the mo) its nothing like a spirea!! Def looks like a cotoneaster.

Conifer for the first and cotoneaster for the second. 

I have to agree about the variegated conifers 

Wow thankyou all for your replies. I have taken some better photos for you. I will number them as in the original post.

Here is a close up of number 1, the conifer, Chamaecyparis lawsoniana Fleckellwood?


The next 2 photos are of number 2, the Cotoneaster...



and the last is of number 3, Helianthemum Ben Ledi?

I'm not sure about cotoneaster for 2. I don't think the leave arrangement is right.

What about Japanese barberry. Nut?

nutcutlet

I'll have to google that Edd but if it's a berberis it's a bit short of prickles

nutcutlet

Berberis thunbergii, no, I don't think so.
