What plants are we ?

Would appreciate any assistance in identifying the following plants in my garden:

These two look like bamboo but not sure what variety?

You know, I think this is what is call "Chamaedorea Erumpens" or Bamboo Palm. You must be in a tropical/sub-tropical area for it to be grown in the ground. I have always dealt with this plant in containers, inside. Is often used in comercial landscape settings, as it can tolerate low light. Just my educated guess.....

The third one is a Phormium tenax. Might be atropurpureum but I don't know how close the colour in the photo is to the true colour. Looks a little washed out to be this one.

Sub-tropical?

Thanks for reply

Stay in North of Scotland. Certainly cannot be described as tropical/sub-tropical area, unfortunately.

Then I doubt it is a bamboo palm then. You've stumped me on that then.

Phormium tenax

Thanks Jess

Looks like you have identified yet another plant in my garden.
