Getting to feel guilty as I have so many that I cannot identify and I'm going to post a whole lot of them over the next week or so- I hope that's OK!
Any ideas as to these two ? First one- is both the plant on the foreground and the cordyline behind it.
How do I rotate the images ? they are the right way up when I select them !

    Don't be shy. We love having a go!
    If you crop your photos a tiny but before posting they come up the right way. Nobody knows why

    Second photo looks like rubus tricolour perhaps?
    Thanks B3, I'll have a go at cropping them a bit. have to resize them anyway before posting them so chopping a bit off hopefully solves the rotation problem.

    1. Shrub.
    Super strong flower buds.
    Safer to wait until they open before trying to id.
    Please add flower pics to this thread when they are open.

    Shrub may be Forsythia 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor. 

    Ridiculous place to plant a forsythia ! Hopefully it's small enough to be moved. Why oh why do people plant things that grow very tall in the middle of the garden? There was a Phormium in the middle of the garden that had grown to a colossal size, and it took up 25% of part of the garden, we have removed all the leaves but it nigh on impossible to get the crown out without a digger !
    Any ideas on plant 2, the low growing evergreen? It isn't rubus tricolour, it doesn't have any spines at all.

    Rubus tricolour stems aren't spiny, they are slightly bristly, from what I remember.

    Could the second one be ground ivy? Not really an ivy, member of the mint family. Are the leaves scented? It has pretty little purple flowers, a wild flower or invasive weed - as you like.
    Dordogne and Norfolk
    It's tipping it down with rain again - sigh- so I'll go and have a sniff of it tomorrow. It does look like a member of the mint family. I've just looked up ground ivy and the leaves are not wrinkled enough. Any more ideas ?
