[... A few days ago I visited my friends garden in Kent, U.K. and it was VERY overgrown! The good thing about that was that the plants were very wild and in great condition! I'm not sure what some of them are though! If you had any idea please let me know!]

No. 2 is Cymbalaria muralis ..

I'll look at the others later unless someone else names them first, # 3 looks like some sort of Acer.

#6 seed heads of Clematis.

[...number 2 is definitely a Ivy-leaved Toadflax.]
[...number 4 does look like a Potentilla. Not sure which one without flowers. I'll keep an eye out!]
[...number 5 is definitely a type of Galium / Cleaver.]
[...number 6 is definitely seed heads of Clematis!]

Galium aparine is the common one, the leaves and general bulk of yours didn't look right but photos are not always accurate.

I took these on the 1st July ..

I thought that too chelle, but it might be something else. It looks quite hairy for Geranium but still possible. I doubt it's a wild plant anyway.

There's probably no real way to tell at this stage, but perhaps later we'll get another chance at it. Smiling

Hi 👋, rediscovered this lovely shrub (in a pot) a couple of months ago. I gave it some TLC and along with the good weather it's flourished. I've checked my encyclopedia but can't find it. Can't recall it ever flowing either so I can't add any info on that but the leaf formation is quite unique and very striking.

Measures approx 30cm high in a pot, woody stem, smooth leaf ever so slightly tinged red at the edges, deciduous (I think), northwest UK.

Thank you 🙏

Welcome!
I think it's Euonymus alatus - Burning bush
BTW, your request would have been more noticeable if you had started your own thread instead of tagging it to someone else's.

Ohhh, that explains a few things. I did try to add a title, now I know why I couldn't. Apologies, didn't mean to hijack this thread.

Thank you for the ID although I've checked and I don't think it's Burning Bush. I don't recall it going anywhere near that red and there appear to be differences in the leaf shape. Shall I start a new post and start again then you can delete these?
