These are quite common shrubs and are both in flower at the moment, please could you identify them since I would like to add them to my garden...

    Top one Santolina in its grey leafed form
    Hypericum probably Hidcote.

    The second is St Johns Wort shrub, I’m pretty sure it is.

    That's what @Palustris said!
    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Thanks for your replies. Although it looks like St Johns Wort , a google search says they grow to only 1m, but this shrub is almost 2m. Perhaps if I take a close up picture that might help?

    There are several different Hypericums, my neighbours have one that is over 6 feet tall!
  • Hypericum self seeds all over my garden.  I have been trying to eradicate it now for years but it keeps appearing and as it has tough shrubby roots damages anything it grows up alongside.

    Hipericum Hidcote will get to nearly 2 metres (6 feet) in height which is what is in the second image.
