I agree with Resin on #1 being Restio.

Sherman Oaks, CA

Do you guys know which Restio species? The plants were around 4 feet tall, I have no idea how tall they might grow, very kinetic (swayed in the breeze), very green, a few turning turning slightly gold. Gorgeous plants, would make outstanding subject for a lush, drought tolerant accent or informal hedge.

Sherman Oaks, CA

would also like to know acacia species, if anyone specialized in that genus. This plant sprawled in a gigantic thicket of growth, measuring several hundred square feet.

Norman, OK

Acacia farnesiana possibly?

San Francisco, CA

your Restio could be Elegia capensis, but it's hard to tell from that picture.

I'm no expert, but you might compare the Acacia with A. spectabilis.
