Polychroma is one of my favourite spring plants .........a delicious mound of chrome yellow.  I have one in front of a low growing purple berberis and They look stunning together.  

Nut if second one spreads it is not polychroma so you are prob correct 

griffithii ....drat this iPad I meant to type in Dixter earlier....is a plant I will no longer grow.  For me it is invasive.  Dixter, apparently, is a clone selected by Christopher Lloyd

You're prob right nut .......does it form a mound of about 40 cm DD or does it spread?

First is characias wulfenii.....one of the varieties. ,second looks like polychroma en route to forming a mound. third is griffithii or Dexter....same really.  

However, my record for Iding plants is not great .........

Pyracantha

The growth on pyracantha is vigorous.  The thorns are vigorous. You will struggle to keep it inside your own property boundary. i have taken out two pyracanthas because they were simply dangerous .........for me when pruning. for kids.  For neighbours.  

New Turf problems

Sara, you let it get too long before cutting it.  Regular mowing is important so cut it every week and keep it at that height for a couple of weeks and then lower blades SLIGHTLY.

its too soon to feed after only 5 weeks I think but a liquid nitrogen feed will benefit your lawn in about 3 weeks or so.

Dividing Bridal Wreath

Cannot really divide spireas.  You may find a layered piece so that's what your neighbour may have done Annie.  

Dying hydrangeas

The old adage is...a pound for the plant, two pounds for the hole.  So Jesse, it is worth while getting planting right for next hydrangea
