Don't think the poppy is native Just think it's been there a long time and it's seeds scatter So therefore more plants. Question .., have you only recently acquired this garden ?

Agree with Greengage...

1 and 2. Datura stramonium.common name Thorn apple etc etc..yes a weed. It is not a good one to have.
Quote wiki..."All parts of Datura plants contain dangerous levels of the tropane alkaloids atropine, hyoscyamine, and scopolamine, which are classified as deliriants, or anticholinergics. The risk of fatal overdose is high among uninformed users, and many hospitalizations occur amongst recreational users who ingest the plant for its psychoactive effects"

3. Looks like a Phlox.

4. Papaver...common name Poppy.
Possibly Papaver somniferum.

5 and .6. Paulownia tomentosa..common name Foxglove tree.

Yipee Im getting better but my spell checker not working. I have heard it said if you fall asleep under datura there is a good chance you will not wake up.

I thought I recognised the Datura. Years ago I was given a book about 'herbs'. But this is not a book about what herbs go well with chicken, it is all about their medicinal properties.

All I will say is BE VERY CAREFUL with this plant. Silver surfer is right, it is very toxic. Wear gloves and do not let any of the sap touch your skin. It contains the same tropane alkaloids as Henbane and Belladonna!

The poppy IS an Opium Poppy, but don't get too excited, it is a cultivated garden variety. I used to have them in my garden in England. I don't know where it came from but once I had it, I had it for good - the tiny seeds get fired everywhere, very pretty.

I think 3 IS a phlox, but I was hoping Silver Surfer would know what variety ' cos I saw something similar yesterday and have not seen that colour before.

5 and 6 - I know the name but have never seen one.

To be flowering now I would say Phlox paniculata.
However, there are many named varieties.
Possibly Phlox paniculata Laura would fit /is similar.
