Three mystery plants

Dear members.

Three challenges.  All taken in May in my front garden.

The grass is I think an ornamental grass but no idea of its name?

The tree with yellow leaves is 5 foot tall?

The little black bush!  Is a rare one, never seen it before?

    At the top you have Carex pendula


    In the sticks near Peterborough

    Then I think a Yellow Cotinus

    Then Sambucus nigra, possibly 'Black Lace' but there are many similar cultivars

    The last plant looks like sambucus nigra, Black Lace

    That carex is a nightmare if it seeds around.
    Agree with the other 2 IDs, although there are quite a few dark Sambucus, all fairly similar   :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    Yes, sedge - pull the seed heads.
    It seeds everywhere and grows very thick and compact, fast. Luckily it's easy to dig out if you want to.
  • Definitely black lace tree I have one  :)

    Thank you for that, sounds better than "big grass"  : )
