    Your perennial is Gillenia trifoliatus but I'm not sure about the shrub.

    Shrub might be kolkwitzia amabilis

  • The first one might be forsythia.  It does look a bit like Lonicera Maackii too, so it's probably neither!  Does it flower?

  • I think the first might be a Forsythia too.

    neither the spent flowers nor the stems are those of forsythia or a lonicera

    could be the kolkwitzia or maybe one of the deutzias

  • The letter G has been going round in my head for months, early Alzheimer's? Hope not. As for the second Ill go with the Kolwitzia, thanks peeps.

    Dave, the shrub (number 1 pic) is what people have named as Kolkwitzia. The second is definitely Gillenia trifoliatus. image
