I've never heard it called English mandrake. 

I love the way the berries are left hanging on almost nothing when the stems dry off in autumn.

It will be a grafted tree, the white will be from below the graft. Cut it off, the growth on that will be stronger and faster growing than the pink and will take over

What is wrong with this shrub?

Eleagnus ebbingeii.

I find these unreliable and likely to  die in patches or completely with no apparent cause. I have a large one going brown this season. I don't think they like being cut back a lot, though this may be 2+2=5. The current one was crushed by a falling tree a few years ago and cut right back. It grew back beautifully and is about 7' tall but quite obviously dying now

I'm surprised it couldn't take a move after 2 years

At this time of year I'd water something in but be careful of overwatering. The plant isn't using water or it wouldn't be limp. Don't feed until it picks up (if it does) same reason

Plant ID please

Definitely not a buddleia. All the others you mention are herbaceous perennials, they don't have woody trunks. This is a shrub or tree,

My garden, site of gravel diggings from the horse and cart days, was used as a dump for years before our arrival. We have, on the down side, lots of agricultural plastic sacks and metal containers (dread to think what they contained), glass, plastic, bits of asbestos, carpet, rusting metal, a fridge. On the plus side, large lumps of concrete, big enough to build a good solid set of steps and a 'rock face', and some lovely old hand made bricks, enough for a summerhouse wall. Still to find, the Reliant Robin my neighbour dumped there.
