Can anybody help identify these plants?
Pink one is full of blooms all summer long about 1m high. 
The purple one smells divine you can smell it down the street! About 5ft tall..definitely not a buddleia as we already have those in the garden

Thanks for any help

    The pink one is a dog rose l think, and the purple one may be a type of hebe ?

    It’s a single rose but a cultivated one ….don’t know it’s name @Marlorena or @Nollie are more likely to know. 
    It’s not a dog rose … a dog rose is the name given to the wild very pale pink/almost white wild rose of woodland fringes and mixed hedgerows in lanes and field margins aka Rosa canina https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/trees-woods-and-wildlife/plants/wild-flowers/dog-rose/

    The purple one looks like a hebe but I don’t know which one.

    Hebe 'Midsummer Beauty'... although there are others similar nowadays.. but the large size suggests this one..
    Rose 'Hertfordshire'...  a ground cover rose..

    I should have said "it looks similar to a dog rose". Slightly distracted by the football 😊

    That's a very pretty rose in the OP's photo  :)

    I would guess at Hebe Midsummer Beauty and Marjorie Fair for the rose.
