Welcome!

It could be a Canna Lily or a ginger. Better photos would help.

Hi redhot310, Welcome!

I agree, the plant in the back could be Cannas (Canna) but something about the habit reminds me more of Ginger Lilies (Hedychium)

The succulent plant is Pencil Tree (Euphorbia tirucalli)

*Blush* I posted the wrong link above, I didn't mean Ginger Lilies (Hedicium) but rather Ginger (Alpinia); here are a couple of photos for comparison:
