Identifying plants given as a gift years ago

Nikki DNikki D Posts: 20

I was given a sturdy plant years ago which was saved from the digger.  You could tell it was a mature plant and I did not expect it to survive, it did I would like to know what it is.  I have found similar plants but the lowers were not the same.  I think it may be from the rhododenron family.

 The next plant was given and although it is nice it really can take over your garden.  Can anyone tell me what it is please.

 The last plant is a trailing plant lovely flowers and is the type that where ever the trailing plant touches the soil it will root into a new plant if left untouched.

 I would appreciate any help in identifying the above plants. Thanks

    Thank you Daintiness. Will have to look them up as to care etc. The pic of the Cistus is from last year. Thid year there have been loads of buds but not opening so I was hoping to find out what so I could stop it from hapening next year. Thanks again.
