Probably obvious but could anyone identify these two plants?

I think plant 2 is Campanula poscharskyana but I'm not sure.

I can't match up the other one with any pictures online at all, but it's probably obvious to some on here.

Any help appreciated.

Number one looks like a Sedum, possibly Sedum Kamtschaticum. Number two is a Campanula possibly poscharskyana but I would want to see the flower to tell for sure.

Do they have flowers if so I think
No1 is either a flaming Katy or London Pride I don't know the Sunday name. Flowers can be red, orange,white and yellow for a Flaming Katy. London Pride usually has a dainty light brown flower/pink which is usually on a spray

No 2 is a campanula which its flowers are usually blue or white

Thanks for the quick replies!

Plant 1, I'm told by my mother, who gave me them from her garden, has pink coloured flowers, and plant 2 has blue flowers, but my little sections don't have anything on them at the moment.

I'm just wondering what they are so I can see what insects they attract, and whether they're invasive or not etc, (I know they are low cover plants) as I'm trying as best as I can to have some sort of companion planting in my garden.

I've a couple of pear trees I'm trying to espalier and also a plum so I'm trying to be conscious of what I'm planting and which plants complement each other.

It more than likely is London Pride Saxifraga x urbium. Try googling it and you will see. This doesn'r really attract butterflies etc but is good ground cover. You can get pink flowers on a Flaming Katy but this is more than likely a houseplant than garden.
If the second one is blue its a Campanula. Also doesn't attract many butterflies etc but also good ground cover.
