Plant identification

Just wondering if anyone can identify this plant? There seem to be a few of them around the garden I've recently taken over.

    That's what I think it could be, too.

    I'll agree with  Jasmine officinale. The white summer flowering one.

    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Thanks, yes it looks like it wants to climb doesn't it. I thought it was a self-seed from the plant against my wall (see photo), but I don't think they are the same are they? If not, an identification of that one as well would be appreciated.

  • Agree that the first one is jasmine, second one reminds me of Buddleja fallowiana. Or is that wooliness actually mildew?

    I dont think it is fallowiana. The leaf arrangement would be more like Buddleja alternifolia.(if it is a buddeleja) If so it should flower early on in the spring.

    I wondered if it was one of those jasmines with the little pink flowers, ?beesianum or something like that

  • Not sure it is a Buddleja, but B. fallowiana has opposite leaves while B. alternifolia has alternate leaves. The leaves appear to be in opposite pairs in the photo.

    Jasminum beesianum apparently only has 5-7 leaflets in a group, this seems to have more.

    The plant does look very familiar, can't quite put my finger on it....

    I may have got the name wrong, the jasmine I'm thinking of has pairs of leaves right up the stems.

    It might be Jasminium Polyanthum. Flowers are extremely sweetly scented. Frost tends to damage it though
