I’ve looked at other posts on here and I’m getting there with identifying more plants! I do it as a bit of a quiz I’ll look at peoples photos try to guess then look at the answers posted below! I have a few shrubs that are now looking a bit better after winter and wondering if anyone can identify them for me? I’ve tried guessing, looking at the rhs site etc but I’m a bit stumped with these!

    Photo 1 -  Looks like a Leucothoe shrub.
    Photo 2 -  Hebe shrub
    Photo 4 - Could be a Mock Orange, Philadelphus shrub?

    Ahh thanks! I thought maybe penstemon but I’d recognise it better with flowers, it’s very overgrown so I’ll see if it flowers and hopefully I can give it a prune after. Didn’t think that was a hebe as it’s got bigger leaves than ones I’ve seen before! I’m thinking 4 is some type of honeysuckle looking at the buds? Ahh yes I was going to say philadelphus but didn’t want to look silly! And just haven’t a clue on the last one? The leaves don’t look too healthy?
    thank you for the replies!
