Weed 1 looks like a member of the mint family. When broken off does the stem have a square cross section?

Maybe dog fennel for number two?

I think number one is used as an ornamental ground cover around here, but I can't think of the name.

Could weed one in the second set be Helianthemum aka Sunrose?
