5.  Astilbe
6.  Has many names, but I refer to it as Himalayan Honeysuckle.  Fruits are edible, but horrible (or perhaps an acquired taste).

5. Yes- astilebe.
6. I know this as Pheasant Berry. Chickens love the berries. Will go to any lengths to get to them. ;D

"Pheasant berry" - hadn't come across that name and I shall refer to it as that hence-forth (Himalayan Honeysuckle never seemed appropriate ref' the honeysuckle we know!)
So easy to grow (and seeds take quite easily also) so perhaps something anyone with chooks should have on their plot.

 

Anyone know this plant?
