Both are in Dallas Texas.

Looking for the tree and the shrub in the second picture.

Thanks for any help that can be given. I'm a novice.

Welcome! I'm wondering if the second plant (it's not a shrub) is a Liriope based on the leaves plus what look like finished flower spikes, but I don't know which one. Here's an example.



I don't know what the tree is but someone from your area of Texas may recognize it. If not, can you post a close-up of the leaves and also the leaf arrangement on the twigs, showing whether they are in pairs (opposite), or single (alternate).

Sorry...still cannot see the proper shape of the leaf...or if it is opposite or alternate.
You say it has alternate leaves...that would rule out Acer sp.

The leaves appear to be three-lobed, could it be Sassafras?

Leaves appear to be alternate. I was thinking maybe a type of Mulberry Tree?

Great - two threads/posts with the same plants.

Mulberry and Liriope.
