the first is a Mahonia, you can prune some of the older stems right to the ground if it gets a bit lanky

2nd an escallonia

3rd Abelia 

Is this Konjac?

it' hard to see the leaves on the OP but they don't look like the much divided leaves of Anthemis tinctoria to me. It's still Anthemis tinctoria, whatever cultivar name it's given

GD, I think you said it was in an open garden. Can you ask the garden's owner?  

Have to admit not started my research programme yet

Is this Konjac?

looks like Dracunculus vulgaris to me.

You mean Amorphophallus 'Konjak'? that's more upright, more substantial, different leaves and less reliably hardy in the UK

if you want figs yes but it may do OK as a foliage plant

Was Ivy a sensible choice ?

i don't think it's suitable but I can't think of anything similar but more restrained.

I'm happy with that one as Anthemis tinctoria, the leaves are right.

I may have to do a bit of research on the other one if no-one comes up with anything. 

Pulicaria dysenterica is Common Fleabane, a wild plant, 2 or 3 foot tall.
