    The flowers are from a Rhododendron and the variegated leaves are Arum italicum.

    1 Rhodedendron
    2 Rhodedendron
    3 ?
    4 Hellebore ?
    5 Rhodie again purple flower
    6 Rhodie again
    7 Perennial clump of something
    8 Rhodie or Azalea?
    9 Arum.   Probably italicum pictum

    Would it please be possible for you to number the photos in future :)

    I think you have Rhodedendrons mostly but not up enough on them to know how big azaleas get.   I do not grow them. The bare stem purple one might be an Azalea?

    3 might need a new picture or explanation of size.

    The purple flowers are pretty.

    Edit: 3 and 4 the same plant? Zooming in looks like woody stems.
    Are the flower buds like the others.

    Thank you Rubytoo, yes I will number in future. I have a few Rhododendrons then (which are superb when they flower)
    I agree regarding 3. It is not in great shape and is probably starved of light. I think I will do another photo (once weather is better)
    3 and 4 are the same plant... I will check the flower buds
    And the purple flowers are pretty...

    I like the purple bare one, it looks like something they might do in Japan?
    No insult to you or Japanese gardeners. I just sort of like it :D

    I think that your little one 3 / 4 might need some water the leaves are a bit floppy?
    Sure an expert will be along soon with pruning, watering, feeding advice.

    Is it big or small you might be able to move it if you like it.

    Do they smell nice?
    A friend has a lovely large yellow flowered azalea in their last garden it was gorgeous. I keep meaning to see if i can find and get one.
    Good luck

    Purple flowers.
    I cannot be positive  but it is more than likely the common very early flowering Rhodo.

    Rhododendron starts as a neat dwarf shrub but as it gets older it can get a bit leggy. I love it.
