My son has moved to Oregon and I am in FL so I am not much help for him
identifying plants.
Any help will be appreciated from 2 people who are learning new territory!
What are these and we are grateful for answers...I know they are common plants
to a lot of people, it just happens those people are not us!

The 1st one is an Azalea. The 3rd one is a Rhododendron of some kind.

I agree with Nel; the second one may be a "Spanish lavender".

I wondered if the 2nd one could be rosemary.

Thanks for your help. I will have more I am sure as he
is trying to fix up his yard! I never thought he would do that
so I am happy about it!

Have your son rub the foliage of #2. If lavender, it will smell (oddly) like lavender, if rosemary, it will smell like ...rosemary.

Good idea!
Also, all azaleas I have ever seen have their leaves all year and this first picture
seems to have lost it's leaves, do some of them do that or maybe because of the
area it is growing in?
