Found a couple of new things in the garden.

Hello there.

Hope people don't mind me keep badgering them to work out what my plants are. I found a couple of new things today.

This first one was in a square plant pot that I thought had nothing in and suddenly noticed these.

 Only just noticed this one.

 3) These I've known about for a while but never known what they are, they get pompom like yellow flowers on and grow on stems through another shrub.

 4) This one I was waiting for leaves to start on it before I asked about it. Took two pictures, neither very good. This was left by the previous owner, was kind of dead looking in a pot, I put it in the ground and it seems to be doing alright.

 Thanks in advance!

I think I have crocus coming up around the garden also, but not open yet.

    1.  Muscari - nice little spring bulbs usually enjoy the shade

    2. Celandine...........a real thug.........will cover everything

    3. Kerria japonica I think

    Can't help with the shrub tho

    1. Grape hyacinth /muscari

    2. One of the ornamental forms of celandine (distinguished from the pesky wild one by the silvery markings on the leaves) .  Not sure which one it is, there are several. The ornamental ones are usually not as invasive as the wild one either.  

    3. Kerria japonica pleniflora

    4. Not sure - really familiar but can't come up with a name image

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    Hi Jack

    1. Muscari, grape hyacinth

    2, One of the cultivars of celandine

    3. Kerria

    4,5 might be a syringa, (but not Syringa vulgaris, the big lilac)

    1 is a Grape Hyacinth, very invasive & hard to eradicate.

    4 looks like a dwarf lilac.

    Wow you are all so fast.

    Thank you Philippa, Dove and Nutcutlet. Now the fun part is going and reading up about these things.

    Yes the 4th one is about two and a bit feet tall, I saw something that looked a lot like it up the road what was hedge sized.

    Thanks Mark, luckily the Grape Hyacinth is in a pot.

    That won't stop it seeding everywhere Jack.

    Agree with the above but no #4 as I have the same shrub but do not have Lilac. It looks more like Spirea.

    Send us a photo of the shrub when it flowers Jack, we'll know for sure then
