Plant id - pink ground cover

Nutcutlet is right. Great for ground cover but easily pulled up.

I'd google it and take a look. There are lots of plants with the name dancing queen. When I checked Amaryllis came up...but depends how big, big is! Post a photo on here for a good id.

That I don't know but there have been several people looking for id of this plant this spring....maybe the mild winter has helped them survive.

Can You Identify These?

I agree. The smaller leaved one is probably cotoneaster horizontalis and good for the position it is in. The larger leaved one is probably thank you to the birds and I would say it will get too big for the situation it is in.

Second picture,  a primula of some sort. I would post again when the flower opens.

Be careful if you are going to remove or cut it down as the milky sap is an irritant. Use gloves.

It's a Euphorbia

Don't have any vested interest in this brand but reviews state that others are inferior. I have had a contech for years and would recommend

What size are the plants at the moment?

Is this trying to die?

I love a rescue story! I think they are looking well considering what they have gone through. The new growth looks healthy. Dave has given you good advice. I would let them flower, take your cuttings and then ( after flowering) cut the plant back (to prevent it becoming leggy) When you cut back make sure you can see new buds or growth beneath your secateurs as if you cut too far back into the old wood the plant will not recover. You could do one half of the plant and then a couple of weeks later when you can see new growth occurring, cut the other half back. I usually do mine in late summer in order for the new growth to toughen up before the first frosts.
