small yellow plant id please!

Hello team

I came across this plant during the summer in Dorset and on the Isle of Wight; they were both planted in gardens that faced straight out to sea. Does anyone know what they are? (the smaller, [paler yellow flower to the right of the tub):



Also, spotted at Stansted House in Hants, this lovely plant. I think it is Galega, which I am growing from seed (but it's still small so can't make an accurate comparison) - can anyone confirm/deny? Many thanks for your help!

    The blue plant is I think Galega.

    Order, the red one next to the galega is knautia macedonica, very easy from seed and it comes true.

  • Yes, I like that knautia Hosta...I think I've probably got some of that as seed kicking around too. I did try to grow knautia melon pastels but they all got slugged or snailed in the GH over winter (grrr).
