    Photo #2 is a ponytail palm. Photo #4 is a Dracena Marginata. I am pretty sure photo #1 is also a dracena marginata, and photo #3 is a yucca, I think. Without touching them and seeing the stems, it's a little difficult to identify. The care for all of these houseplants will be much the same.

      I only see 4 now too!! But I know that the last one was Caladium. I appreciate your help, and I know who to go to now. Could I have your email possibly?

    I agree with GoddessOdd in her identification of your plants. Good job GoddessOdd!

    Photo 1 Dracena marginata 2ponytail palm 3 is hard to tell based on photo 4 dracaena as well.

    Library has great resources with pictures for you to check and confirm names of all plants.

  • Yvonne K. Scribani Yvonne K. Scribani on Oct 23, 2016
    I do believe that GoddessOdd identified them correctly. My mom had a very tall Yucca when I was growing up so perhaps there are different varieties?

    • GoddessOdd GoddessOdd on Oct 23, 2016
      Hi Yvonne, yes, there are at least fifty different yuccas, some are VERY tree like (consider the Joshua Tree, a type of yucca). They have lots of different local names too. I grew up calling them Spanish Bayonets, but these aren't really helpful identifiers, because the common names vary regionally.

    1st is a Dracena, 2nd is pony tail palm

  • Patty Patty on Oct 23, 2016
    #7 is a variegated cheffalera(not sure about the spelling)

  • Kim Kim on Oct 23, 2016
    The flowering plant in #6 looks like it might be Pentas but I couldn't expand the picture for a closer look. Google it & compare. #8 is a caladium.

  • Jean Jean on Oct 23, 2016
    The last photo is a caladium. They can be dug up in the Fall, stored in a cool, dry place and replanted in the Spring.

      I'd say the Florida climate helps. I have lived in PA and TN. Both get a freeze that would definitely kill the root. You're a lucky gal. :-)

    Good source for identifying various images: right click on image and then click on "Search Google for Image"

  • Tammy Ingrum Tammy Ingrum on Oct 23, 2016
    #5 is a pony tail palm too!

  • Kab8458491 Kab8458491 on Oct 23, 2016
    I believe 1, 3, and 4 are types of Dracaena

  • Ice8329808 Ice8329808 on Oct 23, 2016
    There is an app called Like that Garden where you take a picture of a plant in question and it shows several possibilities. I use it all the time especially on walks.

  • Jeanne Courtney Flure Jeanne Courtney Flure on Oct 23, 2016
    #7 is a schefferlera (spelling maybe wrong)

  • KDS KDS on Oct 23, 2016
    I worked with tropical plants for over 30 years. #1 & 4 are Dracaena magrinata also known as Dragon Tree. #2 is Beaucarnea recurvata also known as Ponytail Palm. #3 is Yucca spinosa or just plain Yucca.

      WARNING............YUCCA PLANTED {  IN GROUND } IS VERY, VERY HARD TO REMOVE, ONCE PLANTED.
      ROOT SPREADS- GOES VERY DEEP- REGROWS WHEN CHOPPED OFF, DUG UP. BE SURE YOU WANT A HUGE ,"FOREVER HERE" PLANT IF YOU'RE PLANTING IN YARD. # 8 IS CALADIUM.SEE PICS HERE: www.google.com/search?q=CALADIUM+PICS&rlz=1C1AOHY_enUS708US708&oq=CALADIUM+PICS&aqs=chrome..69i57.15211j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

  • Deborah Cole Deborah Cole on Oct 23, 2016
    The first and last are dracenas, the second is a pony-tail palm, aka elephant foot palm because of the large base which continues to widen, & the third plant is a yucca which has a slightly serrated edge to the leaf that the Dracena doesn't have. The elephant foot and the yucca leaves are also more stiff than the dracena. Some dracenas have a colored edge and are called Marginata. Hope this helps. Debi

    Look up - Sentry Palm Plant Ponytail Palm Parlor Palm Madagascar Dragon Tree The yellow/green might be from the Euonymus family Red Flowered Plant might be a Pentas The last one might be "Heart of Jesus"

  • B. Hannah B. Hannah on Oct 23, 2016

    En mi país México se llama pata de elefante,crece muchísimo y dura muchos años. Son muy bonitas.

  • Gainorhillegass Gainorhillegass on Oct 24, 2016
    Yes, plain Dracena. One with maroon edges is a Dracena Marginata, Pony Tail Palm has a rounded bal shaped base. I brought one to FL from the greenhouse where I worked in PA and planted it in a corner of my pool cage. It thrived. Yucca is the third picture. All these are great houseplants, needing little water, but bright locations. They can go in the ground in frostless places in full sun.

    • Sandra Sandra on Oct 27, 2016
      I appreciate your help. Could I possibly have your email for other questions I might have? i.e. is Russian Sage (particularly Denin n Lace) an annual or perenial. Would it grown well in a pot?

  • C_e9968408 C_e9968408 on Nov 13, 2016
    Agree, Dracena

  • Janet Fletcher Janet Fletcher on Nov 16, 2016
    Duplicate of pony tail Palm, schefflera, also called umbrella plant, next one looks like it could be a pinta, and last one is caladium.
