I don't know that one. Is it hardy?

Yes, but make sure they're ripe, brown and dry, first.

does this berry bush look ok?

I don't think the white leaves are part of the berry bush. It looks like a weed geum, urbanum probably. 

It's hard to tell from the photo but the berry bush looks too close to the wall for good health and with that periwinkle there as well, and whatever is creeping in on the right, there'll be a lot of competition for moisture and nutrients.

Pretty. Maybe I should re-introduce it.

When it's nearly ripe tie a paper bag over its head to catch them.

The fancy colours won't necessarily come true

Larkspur I think though I haven't grown it for years

problem grass verge

Very little grass is just grass. Most have a selection of wildflowers already there unless lawn weed killer has been used. I'd stop mowing for a few weeks and see what you've got. If you dig up and re-seed you'll allow loads of plants you haven't chosen  to get a hold. 

When you see what you've got you can add more. A good packet of yellow rattles spread around after the last mowing will reduce the grass and give the chosen plants more space. Dog daisies, musk mallow  and lesser knapweed are among the easiest to get established in grass.

An annual wildflower mix out there would be a lot more work than grass

Is this the pink deciduous or the white evergreen?

Whatever I think they're both tough enough to stand whatever you do to them. I think the deciduous ones are better for having some whole stems removed to the ground rather all cut back a bit
