    They look very familiar and I'm sure everyone's seen them all before!

    First one looks like daisy, osteo, etc, and grows *really* well against the wind and salt spray.
    Second has drooping leaves that look oh so familiar..
    Third must be some sort of prunus (does any other non-prunus tree even have that plum leaf colour?)
    Fourth looks like.. forget-me-nots done blooming?
    Fifth maybe cotoneaster?

    #2 Dogwood of some kind? Not Cornus nutalli or C. stolonifera.
    #3 Could well be Cherry Plum -- Prunus cerasifera. Lots of people round here call it "Japanese Plum ". Very popular in SW BC.

    Since our resident experts did't jump in, this is my limited, but best, effort!
