I would appreciate it if you gardening gurus could help me with a few more plants. I have six total, but won't post them all at once. I really appreciate the help!

That looks like a strawberry begonia, but I've never seen them grown as anything but house plants, so...
Anyway here's a link to some info, maybe you can tell whether it is or not or not from that.

DubbleT, thanks so much! I think you're absolutely right!! I never would have figured that out. Can you help me with this one? I think it's some kind of sedum.

Thank you so much, no kudzu! I think you're right. I can't believe you all can id these plants from photos! I hope I can learn to be so helpful. I walk around gardening centers looking for plants like the ones we have, but I'm just no good at id-ing plants yet.

I have a few more photos. I hope this isn't getting too annoying.

There are several of these all over the yard. These have pink blooms, but there are some purple ones also. If I need to take a better photo, I can.

We love these identification threads peppermint!

Most of the time it's all new to me also, great way to learn about new plants.

I enjoy plant identification threads, love seeing plants that might be new to me. I've got a plant I'll be looking for an ID on in the fall once it flowers.

I'm stumped and I'd like to know what those pink flowers are too.

This one looks like shaded new growth Kalancho....which apparently is sedum family. I didn't know or forgot.

I'm not sure where in cyberspace it went but I had posted a reply yesterday that seems to have vanished!

I also love your ID mysteries because I am finding out about all sorts of plants I didn't know about! I'd never seen the Strawberry begonia before and love the look. Now if only I had a mostly shady spot for one. LOL

The second one does look like a sedum of some kind but you'll have to wait until later in the year to find out the variety by the flower color. 'Autumn Joy' is the best known and one found at the box stores. It goes from more or less pink to a reddish rust color over a long period of time from late summer into the fall.

The pink flower looks a bit like one kind of Salvia, called Salvia greggi I've seen but the jumble of leaves in the picture makes it hard to be sure which the flowers belong to (at least for me). Try comparing the following links to the plant and see if it looks at all the same:

Salvia greggii 'Pink' - Pink Autumn Sage

Autumn Sage (Salvia greggii)

Salvia greggii

The first two IDs are correct. The variety of sedum is probably 'Autumn Joy', as nokudzu said. I love my AJ sedum.....grows happily through any kind of weather, flowers beautifully, and I don't even have it in full sun like they say you should (I'm in the deep south, though).

The third one, I'm stupefied, but something is niggling in the back of my mind.....the leaves look so familiar. I'm 99.9% sure it's not kalanchoe, though....the leaves and flowers both are all wrong for that. A better picture of the flowers would be great.

I don't believe it it salvia greggii, either, although it is similar.
