Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Jar #1 looks like Lagerstroemia (Crepe Myrtle) variety. Jar #2 looks like possible Psidium cattleyanum, Strawberry Guava. Jar #3 contains yellow Kangaroo Paw, Anigozanthos flavidus, but not sure what the rounded heart shaped leaf plant is in there with it. Jar #6 is bougainvillea.

Agree with Carter for Jar #1 Lagerstroemia indica (Crepe Myrtle) . Jar #3 Kangaroo Paw, Anigozanthos flavidus, Jar #6 bougainvillea.
But for Jar #2 I Think that is Feijoa (Acca selowana). Jar #4 hibiscus tiliaceus rubra, Jar #5 there are possibilities of plants with strap like leaves, but I will dare to guess that would be a Liriope

I agree! That's what I had in my head when I said Psidium. I knew that didn't sound right, but the correct name wouldn't come to me for anything! *Blush* Thumbs up

I agree with what others have suggested for these:
#1 Crepe Myrtles (Lagerstroemia)
#2 Pineapple Guava (Acca sellowiana)
#3 Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos flavidus)
#4 Liriopes (Liriope)
#6 Bougainvilleas (Bougainvillea)

#5 ? Difficult to see the plant clearly, is it a vine? If so, it might be one of the Milk Vines, Matelea species:

#5 also reminds me a bit of a Begonia; there are some types of Begonia's with long leaf petioles but as I said, I can't tell for sure. A photo of an unidentified Begonia for comparison here:
