Lots of nice stuff, Shelagh! That Anaphalis must be a cultivar? Nice wide silvery leaves-- the wild form here has  narrow dark green leaves.
I wonder if your mystery plant could be some sort of Artemisia?

Do you take the  Lobelia cardinalis  under  cover  for  winter, Shelagh?

First  I've  heard  of  Astilbe  'Willie  Buchanan' but  the  name  should  be  familiar  to all SRGC members  as  Willie  B. was  such a  star  of  SRGC in "bygone" years !

This last one is lost label? Great ground cover the Geranium seedheads poking through do not belong to it. It's very low growing only a couple of inches high. Anybody any ideas?
Hi Shelagh,
The foliage looks like a cinquefoil - a potentilla?
cheers

Thanks Cohan and Fermi, I have looked at both suggestions but am still not sure. It's only and inch maybe 2 high and it doesn't seem to flower. However whatever it's called it brightens up a patch with it's lovely silver colour.

Can't get enough silver in the garden :)
