The second plant is one of the euphorbias - they can be striking archetectural plants - yours looks as if it suffered a bit under the other plants.

Do be careful not to get the white latex-like sap on your skin - use gloves and long sleeves when handling it - the sap can make the skin photosensitive and sunlight can cause nasty burns.

Clematis it dying?

Hi   Have a look at the stems - have they been stripped of their outer layer by snails?  For some reason they find some clematis more tasty than others and they climb quite high into the branches and graze on the bark.
