help-identifying-these-plants-please-

Please can anyone help us identify these? We are not sure if they are trees (in which case we will get rid!) All are about 4 foot tall at moment.

    the second one looks like some sort of willow.

    the first I don't know but if it has flowers at 4 foot it's probably not a tree

    The first one has similar leaf shape and arrangement to horse-chestnut - and the right colour flowers.

    Think they are all trees just juveniles. Don't know what the third one is called but know I have got rid of it in several gardens. 

  • Addict says trees, Nutcutlet says not trees... Eek. Any more ideas? x

    1. Not a tree.

    Not a juvenile tree. 

    Leaves and flowers are completely wrong for a Horse chestnut!

    It is a late flowering shrub called Clethra.

    It should have a spike of flowers on the end of every branch.

    A nice shrub.

    I like them.
