Hello to everyone that has replied to my mystery plant. I have taken a couple of photos, One is of my potentilla and the other is this plant that seems to be confusing me.

There is confusion here as there are two types of plant called Potentilla. There is the shrubby type - as in your first photo.
And there is a herbaceous perennial type - as in your third photo.
I'm not sure about the second photo.

The 1st is a shrub Potentilla and I have already suggested 2 perennial potentillas for you to consider for photo 2. The 3rd photo looks different again? Similar leaf but dont think its a Verbina but perhaps a Rununculous flore pleno? Sorry I am confused as I thought you meant 2 and 3 are the same plant?

The leaves of #2 look more like a ranunculus to me...

The second one looks rather like a Canary Bird rose to me.
