The purple one is a knautia or scabious.  The bottom one is a Salvia hot lips.

The argyranthemum will probably be killed by frosts. Take cuttings now and keep on a windowsill. The scabious can be cut down and will regrow in Spring. Cut down the Salvia hotlips in Spring, down to a new shoot. If you leave it over winter , the top growth will protect the base. A mulch wouldn't hurt either.

 The Thunbergia will probably be killed by frost as well. easy to grow from new seed each year.

The one at the front with yellow flowers is an argyranthemum.

I think the middle  one is a heuchera but not sure.

Bottom shrub is  a choisya, the yellow one is called sundance I think
