without a crystal ball.

You could look at Corydalis lutea, possibly now called pseudofumaaria lutea. 

If it's that, it will spread without assistance.

If not, to upload a photo, make the photo smaller and start with the camera icon

Elaegnus leaves turning black

that's not Eleagnus, that's Aucuba japonica which tends to get phytophora infected. Cut out the bad bits. Mine have had this and 2 of 3 recovered

Plant ID please

the tree looks as if a large branch has fallen off at some point, or maybe the bark damage was caused by something else. That is the problem. Missing bark is where rot sets in and also interferes with the passage of water/nutrients up and down the tree. I don't think crocosmia or mistletoe are to blame. It's not in the interest of a parasite to kill its host. Neither crocosmia nor mistletoe damage bark like that.

It's possible that the second one is Filipendula vularis, Dropwort

Mystery tree

I think that might be Chimonanthus praecox. The leaves look right. I've never reached fruits with mine but I've seen images and that looks OK

fingers or a jet of water are pretty effective

apple trees are grafted, the suckers will be from the rootstock. The could be a tree but probably not worth waiting for

well Kelly, if you look at your own profile you'll find you've made 3 posts on this forum, all mentioning this company. I think this is what we on the forum call advertising.
