Could it be a camellia?
Up in County Durham it doesn't seem to do well in pots, last winter died right right back but did sprought a bit at btottom and broke eventually. There is one doing alright in a gravel herb bed in a sheltered walled south/east spot. This is at 800ft.
A vinca, perrriwinkle. There are some nice variegated forms, blue or purple flowers
Thrift, sSea Pinks, Armeria are all the same thgings
SEcond does look like a campanula. The ones with the the long belll flowers like campanula punctata rubra.
I did this last year, worked brilliantly.
I did Chinodoxia, crocus, tulips (two varieties) daffodil and narcissi.
Assume you could also add Iris reticulata for early colour. Layered on bulb size I think
It's a Hebe not sure of variety
Things seem to have started turning really early this year.
agree with herbacous potentilla
Possibly Aconite Bicolour
