Can you help me identify these plants, please?

I have a set of photos from Thailand up on Flickr, would love to get the proper names of the plants so that I can try to grow them here. Thank you so much!

I didn't see anything in pic #4. Don't know about the palm in #5 but the plant in #6 looks like a Crinum Asiaticum.

#3 should have read hibiscus schizopetalus, not Schizanthus. I couldn't remember how to spell it and just did a search under hibiscus schi. I never knew there was another variety with a similar spelling.
