It looks like Penstemon, don't know which one especially no flowers on it.

It likes free draining soil and sun,can be a little tender so taking cuttings for next year is advisable.

Soil type?

You can buy a soil test kit from most garden centres they should only cost a few pounds but knowing your soil type can save you money. If you know if your soil type is acidic, neutral or alkaline you can find out which plants will suit youth soil type and so you will save money.

It only takes a few minutes to do but make sure you test it in different areas as your soil can differ from area to area.

Help needed please - is this a weed?

Aquilegia I would also say but if you leave them were they are they won't be very happy, too near the tree base.

If planting in the ground a few things to remember, firstly they prefer acidic soil don't like lime so what's your soil type? Then if your remember they like to be treated almost like a woodland plant ie dappled shade out of cold winds and direct sun. If you can provide thease conditions your Acers will be better planted in the ground.
