Dear Members.

The first images of the purple plant are of a plant I found growing in one of my pots, I waited until it flowered to try and identify it.

The white flowering shrub images I took I found growing in an old garden of a relation, never seen it before.

Any info greatfully received.

    2nd one might be a Deutzia perhaps.

    I agree with deutzia but the first pics are a bit fuzzy.

    I agree with Deutzia. The pink one could be Spirea Anthony Waterer but the photos aren't clear enough.

    I think that the white one is a double flowered philadelphus, the leaves don't look quite right for deutzia.
