Plant ID please

I think you are right about the bottom one. I am staggered as to how much the flower buds (?) on the top one remind me of 'jacks' image

    Ivy has blossom a bit like that but the leaves are nothing like.

    In London. Keen but lazy.

    do you think the first is a shrub or a hardy (or not) perennial aym?

    That's disgraceful aym. I hope it turns out to be something really worth having.

    those buds are distinctive and look very familiar, I hope someone will ID it before I have to think too muchimage

    Those flowers look like grapevine but the leaves don't!  Could it be something related?

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    aym, nutctlet, Bob, is there a chance it could be Cissus antarctica - Kangaroo Vine?

    As its a bargain basement plant it may not look at its best.

    It's not a plant I know Ladybird but I had a look and again the flowers look similar but not the leaves.

    Its a real puzzler.

    is C. antarctica a house plant?

    with a name like that it ought to be hardy but are the Cissus hardy?

    The leaves don't look right to me but Ladybird's point about not looking its best might explain that.

    I suppose it could be A N Other cissus, there are lots, I don't know any of them
