Plant ID's

Can you help me to put names to these plants, thanks.The next two are the same small weeping tree, around 2 metres tall - if that.Sorry, out of sequence - I would like to know the name of this tiny blue flowered plant.

    The only one I recognize is the little blue flowered one, it is one of the Brunneras like Jack Frost, there are a couple of other cultivars now with silvery veined leaves, but definitely a Brunnera.

  • The tree looks like a weeping cherry
    i agree on Brunnera for the blue flowered plant
    the first picture would be easier to ID if the photo was taken further away.

    The first photo could be an Australian shrub called Banksia Verticillata, a large shrub for mild coastal areas. 
  • Thank you for your help with identifying these plants - I agree the blue flowered plant is a Brunneras like Jack Frost.  The first plant is an exotic, that is all I know about it - not one to be grown in an exposed situation.  No fruits on the weeping tree, so could it still be a cherry @Chrissy the gardener ?
  • A weeping ornamental cheery doesn't always have fruit it’s grown for its blossom and weeping habit.

    Number 1 is Banksia sp.
         "       2 & 4 could be Cercis (pic. taken in Spring looking at the Daffs.).
         "       3 looks like one of the frosty leabed Brunneras .

    Agree with others a weeping form of Cherry...Prunus sp.

    Cercis flower buds are different...
