It is nice to get some descriptions, how tall etc. The first picture is not very clear, could be a conifer or santolina, the 2nd is a hebe, the 3rd could be pittosporum.

I agree with Nicola that the pictures are very unclear, but the first is almost certainly a Hebe, the second could be a pittosporum or cornus and the third looks like Thuja (or some other similar conifer.

The variegated plant looks like a Pittosporum to me, but I am not an expert on varieties.

The other blue flower is a variety of Campanula - but again, there are many varieties. (There's some bindweed in amongst it too!)

I agree that the third photo appears to be a variegated Pittosporum.

the first picture looks like daphne odora marginata, the second might be the variegated pittosporum.

I think the pale leaved one is a Pittosporum - but not expert enough to identify variety. The other has me beaten.

Are you in a place that doesn't get severely cold winter weather - there's a hardy Gardenia (Kleim's hardy) and a delightful plant called Pittosporum tobira (there seems to be a variety called 'nanum' and a variegated one!). I've never seen a dwarf Choisiya, and Ceanothus has only a light scent.
Do you want the scent in summer?
Maybe Sarcococca humilis (sweet box) might do if you want scent earlier in the year.

Thank you for your suggestions Anna, Maggie and Andrew
I think the suggestion of the pittosporum tenuifolium is probably correct - mystery solved!

My first guess would be a holly, its difficult to see the buds,if you had a picture of them, it would help to narrow it down, also underside of leaf and close up of leaf surface. Second guess would be a Pittosporum, P. tenuifolium 'Gold Star' looks very similar though leaf is possibly smaller.

Thank you Tania. That looks exactly right! A pittosporum tenuifolium it is. It is obviously happy where it is as it has reached a height of 5 metres. Is it O.K. to top it out as we don't want it to get any taller? Many thanks

Re: A few more...

The first is a black elder - Sambucus nigra. Lovely pink elderflowers followed by berries that are edible (but not really nice to eat without lots of sugar to make them into cordial or jelly).
The second looks like Campanula muralis - look for blue flowers in a little while.
The third could be almost anything but at a guess is some kind of Pittosporum.

Re: Does Pittosporum affect the health of other shrubs in close proximity

Message from Kathy C

In forum: Pittosporum tenuifolium 'Arundel Green'

Hi, Jacqueline,
The only Pittosporum know to harm other plants in close proximity is Pittosporum undulatum. P. tenuifolium should not be a problem. What is happening with your shrubs?
