A few plant IDs please

see you tomorrow

A few plant IDs please

I think there's an Acer grieum in there.

clearer pics required and we need to know what goes with what; the bark, leaves and flowers if any of a tree all together. Everything works together to ID. Two plants may have similar leaves but they're unlikely to have similar bark, buds and flowers as well.

The best rose germination I ever had was after making rosehip wine. Boiling water poured on the hips, soaked for several days, strained off and the remains thrown on the garden. A rose forest developed.

Some Rosa rugosa sown in autumn germinated almost immediately and flowered within 12 months.

Rosa rubrifolia in a pot did nothing but the garden has plenty of selfsets

Might be Dove. I don't know wisterias well, it looks a bit solid from wisteria in my mind. But my mind is unreliable

I go back as far as inkwells in school desks. White flowers turn blue if you put them in the ink 

Some teachers didn't appreciate the scientific nature of our experiments
