Just a guess, but he first one looks like a campanula of some sort, the third picture has two plants, again one could be a seedling of the first and the other one looks like a parthenocissus quinquefolia, it could be creeping in from your neighbours.

Hello there,
Carol is right. Just a little more help maybe, It is "Virginia Creeper" Parthenocissus quinquefolia, due to the five leaflets instead of "Boston Ivy" Parthenocissus tricuspidata that has three leaflets. Beautiful new growth and Autumn colour, enjoy! May need quite a bit of regular trimming throughout the summer months though.
Best wishes,
Samantha Jane

Hi, Stephen,
Parthenocissus quinquefolia berries are great for birds but toxic for humans. They are reported to cause kidney and/or liver damage if consumer among other adverse effects. So, enjoy watching the birds but don't eat them!

Re: Climbers: Mixing Goldheart with Virginia creeper

Hi Gavin,

You should be fine growing these together. Both are very vigourous climbers so they should grow at similar rates and each hold their own.

Don’t forget to add them to your ‘plants I have’ list to receive regular care instructions:
Hedera helix 'Goldheart'
Parthenocissus quinquefolia

Good luck!

... If you are fairly exposed and would prefer to go for a more robust option, I would suggest the old faithfuls:

Parthenocissus tricuspidata (try the 'Veitchii' cultivar for more interesting shaped leaves) - 'boston ivy', a hardy, vigourous climber which turns into a wonderful blaze of scarlets and deep reds in autumn. This will need regular pruning to keep it in check, but it provides very quick dense cover, and the autumn display is beautiful.

Parthenocissus quinquefolia - 'virginia creeper', a hardy, vigourous climber with small yellow flowers which are attractive to wildlife, and are followed by black berries. As with the boston ivy it offers a striking autumn display of bright reds, but will also need to be kept in check by regular pruning.

I hope this gives you some ideas! Beware - the obvious suggestion was the well known evergreen clematis 'Clematis armandii', but this is poisonous to humans so would not be a good idea.

Let us know how you get on
