Help me identify some of these plants, please?

I trimmed some of this back too. Anyone know what it is?

This is a dogwood, right? There are several of these along the island's South side.

My friend tells me that this is a blue spruce. Any idea about the tall grass in the foreground?

This pretty little yellow flower is very common around these parts. Anybody know what it's called?

More plants to ID.

The label says it's rhodonderon.

Weigela, I presume?

One of these may have a tag at the bottom. I'll look more carefully.

Definitely not a monoculture here. Thank you for the crowdsourcing help.

The climber 20170819_151013 is a clematis, an ornamental flower. Big wide flat elegant colorful flowers, mostly in colors like blue, purple, pink or white. Perennial, very hardy, very deep roots. I like clematis.

20170819_150931 is indeed rhododendron.

The one you tagged as "interesting leaf shape" is a box elder or Chinese elm. It's changed names over time and is often mistaken for poison ivy as the young plants are very similar. It is the red-headed step child of the maple family.

I think the "dogwood" may be walnut or other Juglans species. Need a closeup of a leaf and the trunk to be sure. Not sure. Dogwoods don't grow very well here. Haven't seen one up close in years.

In the future, asking about one plant at a time with several pictures showing different parts of the plant would make ID easier.

The one that says " weiglia, I presume "may be more than one type of plant.

20170819_144841.jpg is weigela too.  In "weigela I presume" the one in the middle with weird two-lobed leaves is Liriodendron (aka Tulip poplar it seems!) but the darker leaves round it I think is weigela, by the look of it the variety described on the label as "wine and roses".  The which the label says is rhododendron yes is rhododendron.

Yellow flower looks like Rudbeckia hirta. Second set of photos the first plant is a Rhododendron, next is clematis, last is Weigelia. In another set is a Boxelder, then an Ash tree and then a burning bush. Last pic in the last set is a Hibiscus.

The one with the red leaves is definitely burning bush.  You can tell by the weird square-ish stems.  They are everywhere here.  Beautiful in the fall.

The one tagged "dogwood" might be sumac ... hard to tell from the pics.

yeah the one tagged dogwood, isnt dogwood. not sure but it is very similar to walnut, or other nut.
then again sumac is also a good guess...

last one is hibiscus, and above that maybe wild lettuce?
or maybe its one of the many not dandelions, i like to call them. theres a lot of similar -but not -dandelion flower type plants.
some of the others have already been said...

The one second from the bottom looks like one of the species of Sow's Thistle


Agree with either a walnut or sumac on the tree.

The third picture does not look like dogwood to me, more like black walnut to me.

Here is some closeups of the one being called black walnut.

I wonder how far the roots spread. These are planted about 30 ft away from the house on the Southern side.

The weigela has both the tulip poplar and what was identified as ash growing through it.

I also see lots of seedling box elder around. I think this might be a stash spot for squirrels or chipmunks.

What it is is an island of mulch in middle of a gravel circular drive. The space is right now dominated by an overgrown wisteria that I'm thinking of eradicating.

When I see a big patch of them in the woods, I assume there had been a trail there at some point.

This pot is growing near the front door. The green leaves on the bottom are yellow clover, right?

The second photo is the bark of the tree my friend identified as blue spruce.

This one, too, I see growing in clusters all around the area, often in conjunction with the rudbeckia.

This is another edge plant, seen on the sides of the driveway, at the woodline, and in a forest clearing.

Yeah, where I saw the big patch of rudbeckia is definitely a trail, and it leads to a small clearing. This part of the property seems like a good spot for a zone 2/3 food forest.
