    1- hydrangea?
    2- ceanothus
  • I had suspicions No.1 was hydrangea thank you. Spot on for the others thank you. No. 4 is the mystery plant ... da da daaaa.

    I agree with Fire. No clue for 4.

    Could you show us the rest of the plant for #4? Is it part of the brown stick plant behind?

    The geum flower looks exactly like my Geum rivale 'Leonard's variety'.

    Throwing another idea into the mix for no. 4: Oleander?

    Oleander does look right, but would it have survived The Beast?
  • Hostafan1 THANK YOU it is Nerium orleander I looked through some notes I made of garden plants and it adds up. Big big thank you to all who have helped me.

    Mine (small, in a pot) did, though there was a little frost damage. I'm in London, but we did still get damage here. So maybe.
