Turkish sage & Begenias

Phlomis,  I was wondering if it might be perovskia.

The phlomis stems look great with a frost on through the winter

Turkish sage & Begenias

re the Bergenias, brown leaves are dead so cut them off if they don't pull.

I don't know what turkish sage is, sorry

What is this, and how do I get rid of it?

Could well be the A. triquetum suggested earlier. Mine are at about that stage.

Alliums are onions Chris.

Or, more accurately, onions are alliums

What is this, and how do I get rid of it?

If they're alliums they'll smell like alliums. Do they?

I'd rule out snowdrops. They're not snowdrop bulbs in the later pics

caring for salvia uligonosa during winter

It's an herbaceous perennial so will die back for winter. Cut the dead tops off before you mulch. In some areas this one survives winter without help. It does in a garden very close to me, but mine died..I think it might have died of dry in summer rather rthan cold in winter

H. perforatum is an herbaceous perennial with seeds.

Pat (Australian Pat) says it's an invasive weed there but it doesn't seem much trouble in my garden

Can you identify for me please

St John's Wort the medicine comes from Hypericum perforatum which doesn't have berries, I don't know which part is used.

Years ago this is the plant that was known as St John's Wort. Now every hypericum seems to be called St John's Wort.
