ID help please ????

imageimageNo 1. Its a huge plant.. taller than me and im 5ft 6. In a shaded part of the garden, and there are at least 5 more surrounding this one. 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks



  • imageimageimageNo2.  Not great pics im afraid. Again its pretty tall, looks like there is new growth.. in a light part of the garden.. my mother in law said maybe pittasporum? (excuse my spelling) 

  • imageimageimageNo3. There are alot of these around the place, tall, light and shady parts of the garden, the leaves are dying off now but there were dying flowers when we moved in (been deadheaded) kind of looked like budleia flowers? But its nothing like ny butterfly trees.

    Hi. The first is Bear's Breeches;  Acanthus mollis - a lovely architectural plant. 

    The second one is too bare for me to identify. 

    Oh - hadn't seen the third one when I posted... will have a think...

    Number 4 is a Rhododendron - all those little buds will bloom next April/May.

    My garden and I live in South Wales.

  • imageimageNo7. I found this thrown beside the shed, the plant/pot submerged in water, since i drained it, it has grown and sprouted these leaves, rather quickly too. Its in the lightest part of my garden at the mo.. seens to like it there ?

  • imageimageNo 8. Iv also found these, which seem to have been out in this pot together. I know its hard to identify roses especially without a flower, but i thought its worth a try. ?

    I have so many more but i'll leave it there for now ?

    Thankyou in advance for helping
