SOLVED: Mystery plants

Montego Bay, Jamaica

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.

#2 is a Brugmansia.

Seattle, WA

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

Baltimore, MD(Zone 7a)

#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.

Contra Costa County, CA(Zone 9b)

#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.

Opp, AL(Zone 8b)

Could #5 be a Smilax?

Anne Arundel,, MD(Zone 7b)

1 nettle like weed

2 brug, happy in the tropics

5 smilax

My guesses
