I see the Datura stramonium as fidget says and the blue one (upside down) is Nicandra physaloides, shoofly plant.
The missing layer is at least half way round the tree, that's serious. This is likely to have been physical damage, rabbit as Ladybird suggests or another offender is the strimmer or other garden tool. I feel there's little hope for the survival of this tree and no hope at all of it ever making a decent specimen.
I'd stick with your 'holes in leaf' thread for this one mark. I've seen this mentioned before so someone knows, not me though, sorry.
Is your 16.42 post an advert?

the stems on the red one look like heuchera as well. we do need some leaves
I'm sure you're right Jeff, just a wind up. Nobody could really be that dim could they
Looks in good nick though Kitty, I'm sure you could get that flying with a bit of work
The photo hasn't loaded properly maya and I'd love to see it. Start with the camera icon and don't try and upload too large a photo. I reduce mine to 30% from the size the camera and the phone produce.
astroturf might be an option, very good for non-gardeners that want it green.
Some of those nice plastic box balls round the edge. Job done.
I'll stick with my worms. Fortunately more people are coming round to the idea that there's no future in killing everything that doesn't fit in with our plans. Glad to hear this one is coming of the market. It's a good start.
They are pretty, woodland species I think, it's always amongst trees and shrubs that I see them, never in the open meadow
