Again wondering what these plants are as well and whether they are weeds the first 2 are the unknowns and the 3rd is the rose bush that they seem to be flourishing next to. If you know what type of rose that is it would be appreciated as well. Thanks

    This looks like pachysandra. If so, it is considered by many to be a desirable groundcover. Others see it as an invasive weed.

    Although it does look a little like pachysandra, I think it’s a sedum and I’d leave it for now. If it is a sedum, it will bloom nicely.

    Pachysandra has lobed leaves, and they hang more downward than in the photo above. They also tend to grow up from the middle more than all sides.
