Can anyone id the following three shrubs for me? I think the first is an arbutus with leaf spot and is the second philadelphus? I can't put my finger on the third.  Many thanks.

    The second isn't philadelphus. Might be a yellow form of Physocarpus opulifolius, 'Dart's Gold' maybe

    Thanks nut, I'll look it up. No idea on the third one? The leaves look quite distinctive but I can't place it.

    It's the way the leaves are folded up that makes it look familiar and distinctive.  I'm going to kick myself I know!

    I think you're right about Physocarpus nut.  It might be easier to confirm when the flowers open.

    I think it reminded me of honeysuckle, sorry.
