60cms  tall is too small for the achillea I suggested and I don't think it's sweet cicely.

The second pic rules out the ferns. They may smell the same but I don't think they are the same. Smell is so hard to describe but it brings back so many memories doesn't it.

Back to the drawing board.

Have you ever seen any flowers, or seen them in winter to know if they're evergreen

I thought fern for the second but can't see how that could be confused with a shrub.

A few more pics might help and an indication of size, but as ladybird says, most of us aren't familiar with US plants. 

I'm finding it hard to believe that those 2 are the same plant tbh.

The top one resembles Achillea grandifolia in leaf, that has a strong smell. It's not a shrub, though could be mistaken for one if you only see it in full growth. 

The second is not an achillea of any sort

Few plant/weed IDs please

Canadian fleabane has the most insignificant, colourless flowers you can imagine. 

Leave it til someone else confirms, but if it is, dump it

When do shops sell primulas?

evening primroses are biennials, the taller ones will flower soon, seed then die. The rosettes, will do the same next year

In this pic I think you have 2 plants, bottom right a couple of hellebores and the tall thing looks like the weed Canadian Fleabane. I don't think it's Linaria purpurea, it looks too bushy at the top and that should be flowering by now.

Really clattnow? I must have missed that. 

Forums aren't for everyone, comments are misinterpreted all the time and offence taken where none in intended. 

You need to be able to say 'It's just a forum' and ignore a certain amount of stuff. 

What plant is this please?

you're right with the spider plant

I think the other is a cotoneaster, can't tell which one
