I think you're right, lilac, not sure which one, 'Palibin' maybe,
They're nice photos, I keep trying to get pics of some of mine but no good ones so far (pics that is, the aquilegias are lovely)
Unless you bought a named variety they won't have names. They're a promiscuous lot and every one is different.
Nut is always right, except when she's wrong
I agree with Kitty, hypericum
I don't know palms but they look more like flowers to me.
It's good that it's neither so you won't have to remember which.
I'm always mixing laurel and poplar, (the words, not the plants) No idea why, there's not much similarity between the plants or the words
I think you're right with the echinops Keen
that's a nice one
