Or Jasminum x stephanense a cross between officinalis and beesianum. Could it seed and produce one of it's parents? The original pic looks like officinalis
Thanks for your comments. Looks like the previous owner was a jasmine fan. Is it ok to prune the large one?
Don't think the second one is a buddleia actually as the leaves would be longer and narrower
Yes zebrina, I'd cut a few stems right back rather than shortening them. You'll end up with a better shaped shrub
looks like you might have a camellia struggling under all that growth as well!
Well spotted. But is it a camelia? (the plot thickens) I thought they had large rose-like flowers, but I see it has some rosettes of what look like tiny flower buds coming at the top.
Guess I should be more patient and wait until the plants flower next year.
Here's another view of the second one, if it helps pin it down at all.
