Pottipam- had a go at identifying your buy- all hardy BTW
LHS yellow varigated one is an Euonymous. Hardy, low growing spreading shrub or the taller variety.
Yellow top RHS is Choisya Sundance- it will eventually make a LARGE ie 10ftx10ft shrub. Has white scented flowers in spring.
Middle back row with purlplish tinge- possibly Photinia Red Robbin. Can be grown as tree or hedge/shrub. It's the young foliage that is the coloured. Dont think it's a cotinus, leaves look too elongated.
Middle front- possibly a small leaved Hebe, not sure.
Top RHS is possibly a small leaved slow growing evrgreen Euonymous. makes only 3ft after yrs!
Bottom on RHS- that could be a Cotinus, not sure.
Because these are all small plants, they do make good tub specimens over the winter months. You may find after 1-2yrs that some/all need planting out or pruning &/or propagating. Good buy. J.
