Plants identification

Asked October 3, 2017, 12:28 PM EDT

Thanks for your help in the past on the Medicinal Garden at the Pry House near Antietam Battlefield. We are adding 3 more raised beds and have pulled some existing plants from the areas we are excavating. I have uploaded photos and wondered what these might be, hopefully worth keeping for the garden. Lisa Romano and Greg Susla

The first photo is a Callery pear, an invasive. Bradford pear is a more common name. Destroy this one.

The second, middle, photo looks like rue, an herb.
The last photo looks like oregano. Crush a leaf and check the scent.
