Hi all
Can anyone identify these plants for me, they are various additions from friends and family and I have planted them in similiar conditions as the parent plants but no-one can actually tell me what they are. Any ideas?

Hi, not sure about the 2nd and 3rd but the 1st one looks like a Pieris, maybe Flaming Silver?

I thought it was too Moongrowe but it wasn't in acid soil and I thought they all needed acid soil.

Osmanthus came to mind but not sure......

They certainly do best in acidic soil but can also grow perfectly well in a neutral soil. What they don't like is a very alkaline soil.

the second looks like the perenial variegated honesty. there appears to be some of the seed heads visible. dont know the other two.

Strangely enough, Daphne odora aureomarginata sprung to mind for the first one.

Not sure for no 2

No 3 looks like a Euonymous

I thought the second one looked like Honesty, but I didn't know there was a variegated variety.

My thoughts (before I had read the other answers):
1 - pieris
2 - variegated honesty
3 - euonymus

Thanks guys- some interesting suggestions, I'll look them up to get some more info. The second plant I got from an open garden but lost the tag but 'honesty' does seem to ring a vaguely familiar bell. Thanks again.

1 - I thought Daphne odara. But, ... ?
2 - and I stretch things here a bit.. Lemon-scented ..verbena? a variagated variety?
3 - euonymus

The variegated honesty will have white flowers and is perennial.
