Can anyone please help me to identify some of these plants, shrubs and trees in my new garden?

1 A & B The next two pictures are of a thick trunked tree/shrub seems to have been trained to bend over and run horizontally as a hedging. It has lush green waxy leaves like a laurel?

 The next is a tree (2 pictures 2a & 2b) I took as a cutting about 6 years ago

 4 I'm pretty sure this is a Heuchera but i'm not sure which may be Plum 'something'?

 5, was sold this un-named as a ground cover plant, it has lovely silvered leaves and delicate little flowers

 6, A small green hedge, not sure of type?

 7 Finally a short grass which is turning a lovely gold colour, not pony tails though?

 A big list I know but I so want to get to know my new garden and the plants I have brought to it. As you can no doubt tell i'm a learner. I want to get to know my plants and trees and read up on then but am struggling to confirm what they are.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

#6 might be a pyracantha. Is it very thorny?

#1 might be some kind of cotoneaster.
