Lavatera arborea I've always known them as but probably name changed by now. Quite popular and should find one in flower at a GC.. 

Not sure about quintessentially English, I always think they look out of place in an English garden in winter, the  leaves look all wrong to me.

Plants ID please.

I think the third might be a dwarf elm, Ulmus x hollandica 'Jacqueline Hillier' or similar cultivar. Have a look at some google images and see if it looks right.

I think garden maiden could be right with the scarlet pimpernel, you'll get more flowers to confirm (or not)

What do I have?

The shrubs are cotoneaster, probably 'Cornubia' or similar
