Photo #3 two different species of Agave. I think the one on the left is Agave ovatifolia (Whale Tongue Agave) and on the right maybe Agave americana (Century plant). They were planted too close and it may not be too late to move one. Others will know more.

#4 another Agave but uncertain of species.

Beautiful plants.

I think the cholla is a diamond cholla (C. ramosissima var. nudum) - it has a widely cultivated spineless form. If the flowers are a more metallic coppery orange-red it is the Diamond Cholla, plain yellow would suggest Stefan is on the mark with the ID.

I think the E. engelmannii might be dead, but hard to find out given the dense spinage.

Two Agave in the third picture. The smaller one on the left is Agave parryi possibly var. huachucensis.
The taller plant looks familiar, but I am not immediately sure of what it is. Could be a slightly wide leaved Agave murpheyii.

The plant in the final picture looks like Agave parryi var. neomexicana to me.
It is what it is!
