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
3 A small spikey little shrub/bush
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.
#6 might be a pyracantha. Is it very thorny?
#1 might be some kind of cotoneaster.
1 = Prunus laurocerasus 'Zabeliana' (Common Laurel)
2 = Cotinus coggygria 'Nordine' (Smoke Bush)
3 = Berberis thunbergii 'Admiration' (Japanese Barberry)
4 = Heuchera 'Jade Gloss'
5 = Lamium maculatum variety (Spotted Deadnettel)
6 = Pyracantha (Firethorn)
7 = Stipa tenuifolia ( Mexican Feather Grass or Pony Tail Grass)
