    1 looks like a Primula.
    2, Heuchera.
    3, Urg! I should know but don't.
    However, you do have a Fittonia verschaffeltii next to it.

    Ha! Hey Barb, saw your answers after I posted mine.
    Will be interesting to read other members' IDs!

    The third one is a Heather, is it not?
    Erica?

    The second is definitely a Heuchera. Possibly a variety called 'Jade Gloss'

    #3 looks like a Norfolk Pine (Araucaria heterophylla) gone mad. When they're very young they can look like that.

    2. try Heuchera micrantha. still working on #3. think it can be a bonsai plant (besides having a role as a normal plant...)

    is it possible the leaves on the sample are thinner than this? and the leaf arrangement does not look quite spot on.

    Yep, I initially thought N-I Pine for 3...but the needle arrangement seemed ? too widely spaced/spiky somehow. Hey, let it grow and see what happens! (Always my motto.)

    Might be E. carnea or E. x darleyensis. I'd compare it, in person with living specimens of both to see.

    #3 Sedum sp. (Sedum rupestre? Sedum Reflexum?)

    I believe S. reflexum is a syn for rupestre. Around here rupestre has denser leaf spacing (though that can vary depending on light/watering) and has a fleshy stem.
