Identifying New Construction Plants

We moved into our new house November 25, 2020, so the plants that came with the house were basically twigs at this point. Some had plant tags but some did not. I'll have better luck identifying the mystery plants when they leaf out this spring, but here is what we have so far:

Front yard: Linden tree and two mystery trees. Maybe a maple (left) and the other some kind of cherry (right behind Linden)?

Front bed: A generic burning bush and two mystery plants, maybe some kind of hydrangea or lilac? The corner of the house has a Royal Raindrops crabapple and Taxus shrubs. 

West bed: Two arctic emerald boxwood and one Hydrangea 'Dolly' labeled

East bed: Two lilac 'Josee' and one Sweetspire Itea 'Merlot'. I also moved 2 divisions of Siberian iris from the old house - the only plants I took with me. 

Back yard: Exclamation!™ London Planetree - Platanus x acerifolia ‘Morton Circle’- this big boy is going to get huge. Hopefully when the HOA changes hands we can move the fence further back into the easement.
