I'm wondering if the 2nd one has a bulb?
If so I am thinking it might be Drimiopsis maculata which apparently is now/before/also (arggghhhhh!) called Ledebouria petiolata. If so it gets nice spots on the leaves before producing a flower a bit like a scilla and can take a bit of dry & shade as well.
If not, we'll start over.

Nice plants you have got. Those plants are new to me so couldn't identify their names. Is that the portulaca you have in third ya fourth image with pink flowers? I love those plants but seems I am not that lucky to grow them. Well your plants looks so nice and healthy. How do you maintain them?

thanks shirleycox-
yes, that is portulaca.. i love them too as they require very minimal care.... and give beautiful flowers all year round... only that i have to redig up the bed and replant at least every four months or they look bedraggled and raggedy.

wow that's really great. One of my neighbor is growing portulaca and she has a variety of colors, pink, yellow, orange and white. They look awesome, I asked her some plants and now I am growing in hanging basket. Hope this one do great.

i have come to realise that too much watering brings more leaves than flowers...
