Hmmm, I fear I can't agree TDC, the stem doesn't look like crocosmia to me.

Hi Bonnie, the first one's a hellebore, the second looks like it's posssibly a scabious, the third looks very familiar but haven't a clue what it is - it reminds me of a peace lily, most often grown as a houseplant but I'm sure I'm wrong.

Hope you don't mind me updating link for you.

Pelargonium problem

For the moment, get them under shelter, somewhere frost free and light. They aren't winter hardy, so as the temperatures dropped they've probably got nipped by frosts, which causes the red leaf discolouration. If they're in garden borders, you'll probably have to put them in pots. Keep them on the dry side (ie don't overwater them). You may find that some of the stems die back, if so, they will need cutting back, preferably to a leaf node.

Hopefully they'll recover, and when the weather gets more reliably warm, they can go back out. If it's a sunny day, put them outside, but bring them back in at night until there is no chance of frost or chilly night temperatures.
