Hi everyone its Toya here. This is the picture of the plant i was talking about yesterday, sorry for the poor quality yesterday.
There are other plants i have here that i'm not sure of can u help me out, i would appreciate it. U would have to blow up the pics to have a better look. P.s. The last pic usually has some small round berries that are sometimes green or purple.

1, Perilla?
3, Trachycarpus or Livistona?
5, Could be Ampelopsis or some kind of Parthenocissus?

#2 could also be the white, common Datura. I see that the leaves are soft and slightly fuzzy.

Brugmansia leaves are more firm and have woody stems.
I grow Brugs and daturas--but in your picture--the leaves look so soft--
that is why I think it could be the perennial, white, creeping all over the place Datura inoxia.

Just my 2 cents...Gita

#1 looks to me like one of the weeds in the nettle family - Urticaceae - I often hear anything like that called "pellitory".

I don't think 2 is a Brugmansia, or a Datura, but I can't quite put a name to it.

3 does not have enough detail to be sure, but it does look like some of the Livingstonias; then again, considering where you are, it could be a Cocothrinax, a Copernicia, a Sabal, or even a wayward Washingtonia.

I have nothing to offer on the last two, sorry.

#5, the vine, clings by tendrils, so not Parthenocissus, which clings by holdfasts. Also, looks like simple leaves, not compound, so again, not Parthenocissus. At least, not the ones I am familiar with.

#3, Are there any remnants of flowers or fruit on the palm? Sometimes they hold on quite a while.

#1: Opposite or alternate leaves? Those things on top... flowers? Fruit?

Maybe keep watching these plants and when they flower, add photos.
