    The one with the pink flowers? Azalea. The one behind it is a Pieris.
  • Thank you very much for solving the mystery Kitty, the flowers are very small, I have several Azaleas but non look like this one, is it a dwarf variety?

    Yes, probably a dwarf variety. I have a couple of similar looking ones but don't know the names of them, lost the labels years ago 😳.

    Just a random thought... Could your larger flowering shrubs be rhododendrons? 
    I think the best way to tell is to count the stamens in an open flower. Azaleas have 5 (?) and rhodies have 10. 
  • Many thanks indeed Kitty.
