was picture 2 a rambly climbing thing with prickles? if so it will have had wonderful scented flowers, but the prickles get you every time if you attempt to go near it!
the lamium - aka dead nettle - should produce purple flowers, spread everywhere as groundcover, but be easily pulled up when you've had enough of it.
The campanula - if it's like mine, gets leggy after flowering. I run my hands over ity like a comb and remove vast quantities of compostible stems, leaving a tidier mound to flower again.
