#5 another landscape plant, forgot the foliage shot on this one. I can get it Friday, if necessary. I think this one is a hosta flower, on reflection...

Number one is possibly St John's Wort Hypericum perforatum
I'm not sure about 2
3 is a sage - possible Clary Sage Salvia sclarea but check the base of the plant and look for larger flatter leaves.
4 is Black eyed Susan vine Thunbergia alata,

The flowers of #3 are similar to the broad leaf sage that I grow, but the leaves point me to mint family still.... I'm thinking maybe Heart Leaf Skullcap? another type of skullcap? Thanks for your help Irene!

#1 seems to match the spotted St. John's Wort. Thanks again Irene!

#2 I think may be American Germander.
 
Wanna see my flashlight? How about this tiny ad?
I'm going to build a sauna trailer and document the entire process in video and ebook form!
