Please help me identify name of these plants.
The last one is Tradescantia pallida, my sister calls it purple queen. Quite common in Florida. The first one might be a New Zealand flax or Phormium tenax. Don't know the middle one offhand.
Thank you, just middle one is left.
I think it is a hibiscus, maybe Hibiscus acetosella.
Oh good, I'm glad you answered that, Eric. I was looking at a different hibiscus that didn't fit well enough. Here's a good page on this one, with a title that is apt:
Growing a Hibiscus with Dazzling Foliage - Cranberry Hibiscus
Thank you all for replies, I really appreciate.
I think the middle looks like the Castor Bean Plant that is often planted as an annual here.
Ricinus, Castor Bean Plant, does have sort-of similar-looking leaves, but the stem attachment to the leaf on Ricinus is not at the edge of the leaf, but is rather attached to the surface of the leaf. And the lobes are more uniformly shaped. Also, the posted leaves have an unusual arrangement, with the lobes closest to the base forming almost a straight line, and the other three lobes seeming to hang more vertically.
