Hi all!

Hope everyone is well. please could you help, a couple of things have appeared in the garden and also my mother in law has sent some plants over and I'm not sure what they are.




 4) I think this is a Geranium, does anyone know which kind?

 5) About five of these are down one side of the garden

 6) This spotted set of leaves have appeared under a couple of bushes.

 7) Sorry I've lost track, maybe this is a close up of No2

 Thank you all, happy I-Ding!

    Thank you nutcultet, you are fast. I thought 2/7 was cotoneaster, that's a shame I've already got a whole area of hedge covered with that.

    I didn't think 1 was cotoneaster, are there many types? The leaves on this are about 2cm long. Is Iria, Iris?

    sorry yes, Iris. Typo

    Lots of cotoneasters but it may not be, see what others think

    Agreed, if you look at the vein action on 1 and 3, they look exactly the same. And I'm sure 2 would aswell, but there's a lot of light reflecting off it image

    Ah, thank you both I will have a look into the different types of cotoneaster.

    Does anyone have an idea about 4?

    Yes, that is a Geranium, but it's Latin name is Pelagronium (sp. ?) image

    Ah thank you Ryan!

    1 could be Cotoneaster Cornubia, or C. Bullatus. Difficult to tell ,even with a photo.

    I'd say 5 looks like  Iris Pseudoacorus. common flag iris, a weed in my garden.

    3 could be C. simonsii, but again, don't quote me on it.

    Thank you Hostafan.

    I was just looking at varieties and I think 1) is a Cotoneaster Lacteus because the leaves are dark green on top and pale almost white underneath. Sorry they are bad pictures.

    I'd never really know about Iris' the flowers look amazing on them. I won't mind a weed if it looks like that, When I got this garden last summer, these Iris looked the same but almost dying, no flowers on, when do they flower?

    I will look up C.simonsii, thank you!

    I don't think 1 is lacteus.

    The iris could be pseudocorus, it may be a water iris but it seeds and flowers in the most unlikely places
