Hi, I have just moved into a new house with an amazing garden. I want to keep it that way and have been researching for weeks in the run up to moving in. Now we're in i need to identify what i will be looking after. I have attached 3 photos as a starter. Can anyone help? Any help will be much appreciated Thanks :)

No 1 is Centaurea montana
No 2 I think is a hydrangea of some description
No 3 is a Hosta. There are several variegated varieties so would not want to try to guess which cultivar this is

Hi, first pic is Centaurea montana ... second looks like Cornus stolonifera 'Flavirema' ... thirdly is a Hosta, quite possibly 'June'
Happy gardening :-))

By the way Mal, I agree with Wendy that No 2 is in fact a Cornus (although I am not brave enough to go beyond that in id'ing it from a photo).
Pleased to have learnt something myself from your enquiry - Thanks Wendy.

Hi Roger, this would make sense because there does seem to be another variety of Cornus right next to the one I photographed.
I will keep a close eye on them and see how they get on
