Can anyone ID these two
I would be most grateful to anyone who might be able to help me id the two plants shown above.
The one on the left is a flowering shrub about 60cm in height. I cannot recall planting it. It started growing in early March. It appeared rather agressive in its growth so I nearly decided to suppress it but then let it be. It started flowering about 4 weeks ago and now has multiple bunches of small flowers with a delicate scent. Although not visible in the image the flowers are "two tone" - with a red center that fades to pink.
The second is a ground cover plant that I bought about 5 years ago. It was smaller than 10cm in diameter when I first planted it. It has now grown to cover an area of over 2 square meters. It appears to keep to itself, has never flowered and is no higher than 7-8 cm. My wife often jokes that if we visit our village in 100 years from now we will find that it has been replaced by a carpet of this green stuff.
