Hello everyone. I recently bought a house which came with a backyard full of lovely plants. We're not sure how well they were maintained but want to ensure they are well taken care of moving forward. I am hoping someone with much more knowledge than myself can help me identify some of these plants so that I can do some research on proper maintenance.

Not sure if this matters, but the plants are all outdoor and located in South FL.

Thank you in advance!
