Default What plant is this?

I will post some photos of greenery around the house and really need help from anyone on what it is called, and if its something worth keeping. For all I know, these could be overgrown weeds. Any help at all is appreciated. If I am likely to remove it and then go spend $50 re-buying something, definitely would like to know! :-) Thanks, all.

Where are you located? That will help some in determining what these are.... some are just woodland plants that I recognize from my yard... but I need your zip or state to determine your zone, etc....

Just to show you how unfamiliar I am - even enough to make guesses...I just realized several of my photos are sideways and I havent turned them around because I couldnt tell! Only way I know that is because of the ground pebbles or recognizing something around the plant...

Your first post,
top row from left to right:

1) Japanese maple, red leaf--don't know the name of the cultivar
2) Mimosa? Does it flower?
3) sideways lillies
4 & 5) Holly, looks like dwarf Burford

Second row,

1) too blurry to identify
2) no idea
3) some kind of vine, possibly clematis? Looks invasive whatever it is.

Your second post,
Top row from left to right:

1) Pittosporum
2) Magnolia
3) Pittosporum again
4) I think it's a weed
5) Nandina

second row
last pic: I don't know, it looks tropical.

Where are you? Texas, Florida?

3) sideways lillies - sideway as in my pic is sideways, right?
4 & 5) Holly, looks like dwarf Burford -Not convinced I'm a big fan of holly bushes, anyone think they are good for anything besides poking my fingers when trimming?

Second row,

1) too blurry to identify - Sorry...it has little pink, delicate flowers that look like a rough rain will knock them off easily every time.
2) no idea
3) some kind of vine, possibly clematis? Looks invasive whatever it is. -This is definitely a sideways photo...does that help?

Your second post,
Top row from left to right:

1) Pittosporum - Is this nice/worth keeping in the garden? Too big? How do trim?
2) Magnolia - Excited to hear of this
3) Pittosporum again
4) I think it's a weed
5) Nandina -Interesting...I will have to look it up. I dont know how to care for it but it seems to be doing ok on its own. Why do some of the leaves at the bottom turn pink?

second row
last pic: I don't know, it looks tropical. - Ok. Thank you!

Where are you? Texas, Florida?
Excellent! Thanks so much!! We are in southcentral NC.

Azoria, I was just looking up Pittosporum but I couldnt identify with any of the photos I was seeing as compared to my plant. I will try to post a closer photo of a leaf below...is this the one you were calling Pittosporum? Thanks. (Do you have a reference link or something I can read/view?)

I wanted to add that the photo shown above in my 2nd post -photo #2- appears larger than it is in person. These leaves, and this (half dead) flower are very small. Are you sure this is a magnolia, as it isnt a tree but is a bush of some type? Thank you (again, any reference you may have would be great!)

First post, second row, third photo:
looks like a baby kousa dogwood to me - I have several around my property and am looking to find a good home for them.
