Blueberry Bush

Snowy I would think as you had flowers on they either were not pollinated or the plants got too dry so didn't set Fruit .You are better having more than one plant which helps pollination and don't forget to feed , even now with no fruit on.

What is this please?

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

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.

Such a handsome chap
