Thank you

I'll move this over to the Plant ID Forum where it will get more views.

I think Daisy meant #3 is an Impatiens - a New Guinea Impatiens.
#9 looks more like a Clematis to my eyes.
#5 could very well be a single Dahlia
#1 is a #1 pest - the fluffy-tailed tree rat.

Is #9 actually real? With that long style and a largish blob for the stigma, and six petals, I wonder if it is an artificial Lilium.

Yes, I did mean #3.

Just went out and took these photos of Balloon flowers. Sorry the pink one isn't blooming. Tomorrow the little club will be a little star. Some of them have more petals but they were already little star things. Still just a guess on my part.

The last one is surrounded by Lantana. Could those blooms be Zephyranthes?

Just noticed my balloon flowers don't have separate petals. I'm taking my guess off the table. Sighing!

Whatever #9 is, if real, it has to have a really long pistil with a large blob for a stigma. If you blow up the picture, there are creases in the petals, the biggest flower has a very straight and unnatural coloured green stem, and the bottom left plant has holes and ragged edges. They look like artificial Liliums to me.

That's were I went with Platycodon (another genus in the Campanulaceae family) but, once again, no separate petals unlike the plant in question.

Are there any Campanulaceae with separate petals? Maybe Sooby is right, some dropped a bouquest of silk flowers into the middle of a Lantana bush.

I agree with Sue. These are fake, fabric flowers. Look at the left, lower "flower" and you can see frayed fabric as well as the holes that are on the selvage.

I never noticed the frayed edges on the flowers in photo #9 but they do make some truly real looking silk/artificial flowers nowadays. A few years ago when I was watering some plants and flowers on my screened porch, I caught myself watering a silk plant along with the live ones. Rolling on the floor laughing

I definately need some of these! Whistling

As we have not heard from @popeye721, this is the ONLY post made by them, and most of these photos have someone else's tags on them, I suspect we have all been pranked.
