#'s 2 & 5 look like Roses. Don't know what ones though.

I believe #4 is a rose as well.

#1 looks very much like Wheat celosia, Celosia spicata

#2 reminds me of Camellias

#3 might be Euphorbia punicea, Flame of Jamaica

moon could very well be right about #2. My initial though was Camellia, but decided to go with Rose. Not sure why… Good example why seeing more of the plant is important. Leaves can help to tell the story.

Hey Tim...#4 also kinda reminds me if one of the sasanqua camellias (Yuletide was the first to come to mind) but really can't say without good images of the plant itself.

Yeah, I agree…Flowers are nice, but the plant itself says so much more. :-)

I saw the flower in the second pic in my neighbour garden, it's Rosa Mundi (Gallica) David Austin.

The flower in the first pic looks like Australian native flower, Lamb's Tail Joey.

I don't think so--flowers look more like Celosia to me. For comparison:

I just got look more careful. You are right, it's Celosia. Thank.
