Notes:

These are just 3 if my deceased mothers favorite plants she planted many years ago. I would like to keep them healthy. I especially like the beautiful cobalt blue blooms the bush in pic #1 provides each year and would like to know its name, how to make it even more beautiful, and if it is easy to propogate.

    The first one is definitely a Lace cap hydrangea. Photos cannot capture the true blues of its beautiful flowers.

    the last plant maybe a cultivar in the Japanese aucuba group (Aucuba japonica). Check it out and see if you have a match. Link below with growing culture. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/shrubs/aucuba/aucuba-plant-care.htm

    The 2nd plant looks like a cultivar of the Reeves spirea, maybe Spiraea cantoniensis ‘Lanceata’? Link below for growing culture. http://www.clemson.edu/extension/hgic/plants/landscape/shrubs/hgic1074.html

    I can’t see the #1 too clearly to be certain, I’m guessing it could a type of hydrangea in the mophead/lacecap group (Hyrangea macrophylla). Check out link below for images of its varieties. If this isn’t that, make new post when it blooms again. The follow up link is for propagation methods. Best wishes! https://www.google.com/search?q=Hydrangea+macrophylla+with+blue+flowers+varieties&sa=X&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&ved=0ahUKEwjPm_rgo6nTAhUC8IMKHZSBBPoQ7AkIeA&biw=1722&bih=833
