    1st one looks like Phlox

    Not a clue on the second one

    3rd one looks like a Geranium or possibly a Delphinium

    If you have a smart phone, there is a free app called Garden Compass.  You take a photo of the plant you want identified, send it to them via the app and they will get back to you within 24 hours with an identification.  I have used them a few times and they have been spot-on.  Good luck

    Are these plants you've grown from seed or plus or something else? Knowing the history can sometimes help.

    The first does resemble a phlox, possibly divaricata and the last geranium rather than delph I think.

  • Could the 2nd one be St John's wort?

    What would be the point of doing that and ID'ing here? We like these questions!

    Echium, that'll be the one blairs.

    I think our ID method is better than an app. You get discussion and consensus. I'm not convinced re the first one but someone else will come along and conform or offer a better ID. An app would give you an ID, right or wrong

    I should have said Echium pininana, which is semi-hardy in the UK.
