    It's an annual, it wasn't there a couple of years ago.

    a mystery. I'm pretty sure that's the correct ID maybe someone else will make another suggestion

    thank you again, looks like its going to get too big for the space.

    The first plant, is it low growing and sprawling on the ground? Could be a Vinca Major.

    Hello Borderline, 
    I've got Vinca Major in the back garden but it doesn't look like this one.
    Its only about 3 ft high but growing pretty rapidly. 
    Its had a cluster of smallish purple flowers about 2 years ago, nothing last year and not sure what to expect this year.

    Is it a part of the plant on the left in the first photo?
    I do not grow hydrangeas, so don't know if you get red stems or if the new leaves are like the close up.
    Just that the left side looks hydrangea-ish.

    Edited as what I am trying to say is could it be two different plants?

    Oh I lie! I grow the climbing one, but not bushy ones.
