The Lamium is Lamium orvala. Odd plant in that snails ignore the mature one, but decimate the babies that I have taken from it.

Viburnum plicatum mariesii about to flower.

Viola, depending on the size of the flowers, it could be V. riviniana, the common Dog Violet, or less likely Viola odirata, Sweet violet. The leaves look a bit smooth for the latter though.

Just be careful that they are Lily beetles. There is a Red Cardinal beetle which may be mistaken for Lily beetle. They are gardeners friends not enemies.

Our V. juddii is very highly scented.

The most scented one we know of is Charis, that is a much smaller growing shrub. Another lower growing and very scented one is V.Mohawk.

We have about 25 different Viburnums in the garden.

Oxalis-but which one?

Oxalis acetosella is a possibility. Native to Britain.

Akebia quinata aka The Chocolate vine. Very vigorous grower where suited.
