Lovely park very coloufull,

yes Lantana pretty plant but not frost hardy sold in G B as a annual.

Is this Japanese Knotweed

I don't think it's knot weed, knot weed has red stems and the leaves don't look quite right.

I am with fritillaries post I to think it's symphocarpus   ( snowberry )

symphocarpus does Have a dendancy to sucker and will pop up here and there, it's quite a nice shrub and has lovely berries later on.

I D please

Tree ID please

I thought Cersis as well ,pretty sure not Prunus.

The lichen doesn't hurt the tree so is not detrimental.

I have had thease flowers in a bouquet and wondered what they are called, I just know someone on the forum will know.

Can anyone know or recognise the identity of this plant.

You can get a herbaceous clematis that doesn't climb, Arabella being one of them has Richard suggested.

Have a look on Alan Tichmarches site.
