Plant Identification Help Please

karenktekarenkte Posts: 47
I could do with some help to identify some plants.

1. This is growing in a hedge but it seems like a shrub to me....any ideas and should I remove it from the hedge and give it some space of its own next year?

2. this is in a hedge too and I think its kerria japonica - is that correct?  Again should I remove it from the hedge.

3. This is a really small low plant - no idea.

4. This is some kind of blossom tree but I never get any fruits.  What is it.

5. and 6.    I think these may be a weed.  They are popping up everywhere .  Does anyone know what they are?

Thank you

    I think 5 and 6 are possibly geum, herb Bennett (?).

    1 Ribese flowering current no fruit
    2 kerria
    4 ornamental cherry of some sort
    5 geranium?
    I think of 3 as a primrose but that's too non specific

    Photo 5 & 6 could be Tellima Grandiflora or Heuchera.
  • 5 and 6 are definitely Heuchera—could be H. villosa but there are hundreds of hybrids around these days and you’d need to wait for flowers to tell with more certainty. 1 is fine in a hedge; they are often sold as part of mixed hedging. And the flowering cherry, no. 4, is an ornamental tree that isn’t supposed to bear fruit. It looks somewhat like Prunus sargentii to me.

    Agree with above - Ribes, Kerria and Primula denticulata. I too wondered about Tellima grandiflora for the last two.
