Could I have some plant ID's please?

Also, are they weeds that should be removed or plants that should be left there?

1&2) behind the rose

Are these current photos, Alex.
1 & 2 remind me of Polmonium, Jacobs Ladder, except that they should be dormant now.
3 there are a number of polyanthus in the picture but I assume that you mean the plant in the middle - sorry, don't know.
I am going to leave your second question for others as my opinions are pretty negative. Sorry.

It is Jacobs Ladder, that name rang a loud bell, and I remember planting it in that part of the garden. Thanks for the reminder. For some reason most of my plants have remained green, eventhough many should have died down especially with the snow we had.

I did mean the one in the middle of the polyanthus.

What do you mean by "negative?"

I am sure your comments on my other question would have been O.K.

most of my polemoniums didnt die down either and I agree with the id BA. :o)

As for the one in the middle of the primulas its too blurred for me I am afraid.

However I would remove it from the primula as it is right in the middle.

many of my wild flowers are classed as weeds by others. If you like it grow it , if you dont its a 'weed' and dig it out.

O.K, thanks. I may pull out the one from in between the primulas.

The blurry one's annual dog's mercury, a weed if you don't want it! Worthy

Looks like a Vetch. The are still green now but not necessarily evergreen. They die down, but still shoot if that makes sense. Many types around. Common ones and cultivated ones.Number 3 pic looks a bit Fuchsia like...

The 3rd one will be removed . I spent a few hours this afternoon doing maintenace and cleaning up in the garden, and still have more to do, so will do it tomorrow.

Thanks for the replies.

dog's mercury starts with its flowers usually march so i dont think it is. leaves are not 'shiny' either.
