    The first photo appears to be the very common Knock-Out Rose.

    The 2nd photo is a Chinese Fringe Flower (Loropetalum chinense var. rubrum) It could be any of the cultivars, as I am guessing this is a recently planted 3 gallon.

    The 3rd photo is tough for me to exactly tell from this image which type of holly it is. It appears to have just a single end point on each leaf. I would guess it to be a Dwarf Burford Holly (Ilex cornuta ‘Burfodii Nana’). Although if I could see a closer image of a single leaf it would help to determine exactly which holly it is.

    @Lyle: Photo #3 is a Needlepoint Holly, Ilex cornuta ‘Anicet Delcambre’. These appeared on the nursery scene in the early Eighties. We had a couple of below-normal winters and the Dwarf Burfords suffered a lot of damage, along with a lot of other regular plants. The Needlepoint is supposed to be more cold hardy than Dwarf Burford, and I suppose they are, but we haven’t had the extreme cold to test them.
