Try posting on the 'Name that plant' forum. The last 2 definitely look like water lilies.


RE: What Flowers are these?

second one looks like a Melastoma, aka Tibouchina.

RE: What Flowers are these?

First one is a Clerodendron. It is hard to be sure without foliage in the picture and some sense of scale - maybe C. paniculatum. Second is a member of the melastoma family. Tough call on such a close up of an unopened flower - probably a Rhexia. Weedwoman is right - the last two are definitely waterlilies. This is as exact as you can expect with photos that show so little of the plants.
