a very suprised newly keen gardener, i have brought my first house and there are lots of plant thats i cant identify that i would love to know what they are.

i have taken pics and wonder if anyone could help please

there are lots of pics, and i am not sure if i have attached them properly, but i would really really appreciate anyones help

the first one is like a bush

the 2nd and 3rd are the same plant

the 4th looks like a rhubarb patch to me its so big, but i know it isnt

the 5th and 6th are the same plant

the 7th has tiny tiny flowers, and there is another plant the same but just with pink flowers not pictured

the 8th did have a few pink flowers on till i lopped them all off.

whether this is any help or not i dont know, forgive my ignorance, but im still learning.

I think 2/3 is a penstemon but I might be wrong.

4 looks like Bergenia or Elephants Ears.

8 looks like some kind of geranium.

The experts will be about later tho :)

Just let them do thier own thing and wait until next year to see what else you have lurking around in there. Looks like a nice crop of colourfull plants you have there. I would just wait and see, don't cut anything back though.

i agree with torzcooper ,,,if i was you i would just wait till next year and see what develops before you start killing off any plants ..

I'm pretty sure 5 + 6 are Oxalis - these should be dying back now, and will reappear in Spring.
