Plant ID's

I've enlarged number 2 and I think it's a variegated Weigela. These are best pruned by cutting out some of the older stems back to the base every year and leaving the rest as they are. New stems grow and over a couple of years you'll have a much better shaped shrub

They have flowers in them though, so they must be.


Dove, you've seen them, are they flower borders?
