The fluffy one is a Sanguisorba I bought from the old Blooms catalogue over 20 years ago. It has been with me in 4 gardens. I always lift in because I have never seen it anywhere else to buy. I have a very large pink one too, which is beautiful, but it tunnels away underground and comes up everywhere. So I'm trying to dig it out this year. It is a thug, whereas the white one is a wimp. It hasn't increased in size at all hardly. The Clematis came out of a skip..................as Shrub already knows, I worked in a GC where everything went in the skip as soon as the flowers were over. I have dozens of unknown Clems. (But I have Plocket now too ). The Sweetpea too was a throw away, and the packet was an old one, but it grew. No idea of the name, but the smell was beautiful, so I'm going to grow more this year.
EEEK! Thanks for your confidence - I'll try and help! ;D
What a lovely way to fill a garden though - with freebies. Funnily enough my mum and dad have benefited from LOTS of my plants. I'm taking my nearly finished wildflower experiment to their house this weekend in the hope that it can help seed their wildflower meadow.

This appeared 'mysteriously' in my garden about three years ago. Birds, maybe? And I've snipped bits off it and just plonked them in the soil and amazingly (for me!) they've grown. It's a generous little rose so I thought it deserved a pic.
God gave us memories so that we can have roses in December
That is well ahead of my Fatsia.The "terminal flowers are just about to go over but the main display hasn't started yet. I dooooo love them, as much for when they flower as for what the flowers are like. The remaining bees and hoverflies love them!
