Bears Breech (acanthus): This plant appears to be an Acanthus, but you will know for sure when the flower spike open.  It grows best in full sun to part shade and is quite drought tolerant once established. The most cultivated species are Mediterranean natives. Tall flower stalks come later in the season, ranging in color from white to deep purple, and are quite show stopping !

Flowering Quince (chaenomeles): This is likely a flowering quince. It produces bright flowers, usually salmon like this one, but also red, pink, orange or white late in winter or early spring. Occasionally produces fruit as well, which resembles a small edible quince but lacks flavor. Needs full sun and regular water as a plant. Popular in cut flower arrangements too. Very lovely!

Heliotrope (helioptrope): Heliotrope is an annual that grows to about 2 foot by 2 foot typically with purple flower clusters. They can also be found in white as well. This old fashioned plant is the base for several perfumes as its sent is somewhere between an intense vanilla or sometimes baby powder. It can be very susceptible to a fungal disease called rust if it doesn't have good heat and air circulation.   Not a perennial here unless you have a greenhouse and even then would be a BIG…

Yew (taxus baccata): This is a yew. New growth on a yew is apple-green, turning dark as it ages. Yew is one of the few conifers that will "break" - that is, grow new leaves - from old wood. That's one reason it's such a fine hedge plant: it can take a trimming. Red berries often decorate the shrub in late summer and fall. This evergreen shrub grows best in full sun and regular moisture.

Lupine Problem: Lupines do best in full sun and in regions where the winters are cool and wet with long hot summers. If they are not in full sun, you can transplant them, but be very, very careful you do not damage the long tap root. And if you do move them, use a root stimulator such as one formulated with indolebutyric acid to help them recover. Also you can feed them with a slow-release or acid fertilizer until it begins to bloom, then discontinue fertilizing.  Hope your plant recovers.
