Plant ID, updates and confirmations.

Hello everyone.

I've just been out in the garden and took some photo's of things, a couple were plants that were not able to be identified before because they hadn't come into leaf properly. There's a couple of new things too.

1) Firstly I just want to confirm, is this cornus/dogwood, it has bright red bark and people identified it as such, just wondered if anyone new the type.

 2) This was one that people couldn't get before, it is just starting to show up these little clusters.

 3) I've got two of these trees, one large and one small, at first I thought it was going to be magnolia (hoping) but don't know. Two pictures for this one, sorry about the blurriness, I don't seem capable of using a camera when it comes to plants image

 4) This was another that couldn't be identified before, but now is starting to flower.

 5) This has popped up in a pot.

 And finally, my Syringa has started to flower so here's a picture of it.

 Thank you all, hope everyone's having a good day!

    Hmmm yes,3, sycamore - you probably don't want that - I'd get that out before it's bigger than your house and shades the whole garden and you have acres of baby sycamores springing up everywhere - unless you have a couple of acres that is. 

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

    Thanks nutcutlet for all those!, much appreciated.

    Cheers Magical Meerkat for confirming that.

    Dovefromabove, Supernoodle really? How fast do they grow? One on the right side of garden is about 15ft high, there's two on left hand side by fence about 7ft tall. I wish I had a a couple of acres. My garden is only about 5 by 8m.

    5m x 8m garden. Sycamores out now Jack. image

    They're fast. Leave it much longer and you'll need a tree surgeon rather than a sawimage

    oh no! I'm gutted, that is the only actual tree in the garden.

    Sorry Jack, they are enormous trees. 100 ft or more and wider than your garden

    Wow! Thanks for the info anyway. Hmm, got to look on the bright side of this.....more logs for another log pile, another gap for me to buy more plants to fill. I wish I could afford a decent sized tree to go there. I'll feel so guilty chopping it down.image
