Does anyone recognise this red flower?

I'm probably wrong but think it might be a heuchura.

If this was Yours ...

I like it. Think if it were mine I would put in some variaged hosta, fern, lily of the valley, white astrantia and a white anemone for the autumn then tuck it somewhere a bit shadier.

A neighbour cut down 20 foot of my hedge (my side of the boundary and stuck a fence up so I have a big gap to fill and am not the most patient of people ! So I think sadly I am going to have to put my hand in my pocket for this one and get something a bitbigger. 

I'm delighted to know what it is. I know I keep saying it but it was such a lovely surprise to be pruning away next to it and get these lovely wafts of smell coming over. Thanks for the help.

Thank you very much indeed. She'll be delighted to know what they are and that Eleagnus is now on my shopping list as I love the smell.

A friend has moved house and we're a bit stuck on a couple of plants. The first is outside her back door and has a gorgeous scent.

 The second is climbing over her shed. It was quite hard to photo properly. The leaves are pretty big.

 I'd be really grateful if anyone could help. Many thanks.

I did that with the main stems this year which is why I feel a bit cheated, but I'll have to just get over it and dream of years when I finally have my wall covered with gorgeous roses.

Lax spindly stems is a very good description of what mine is doing. Looks like I'm being too impatient! Thank goodness my new Zephirine Drouhin is about to flower to make up for it a bit. Thanks for your help.

I bought this from a rose nursery last year so it's on it's second year. Lots of growth but no sign of flowers . It had rose fertiliser applied in the spring plus has been mulched with garden compost.  It's on a north facing wall but does get some sun. Am I being too impatient and anysuggestions please ? Many thanks.
