May I See Your ID?

Quite a few blossoms are thriving in the back garden now. 
Are you feeling smart?  I have photos of a dozen different blooms for you to identify.  Today, I’m offering 6 for your identification.  I’ll post the answers with as much name information that I know at the end of this post for you to grade your knowledge.  No prizes---just the crown that you’re a garden smarty.
Ready?  Set?  Go!

Well I couldn't ID Hawaiian Blue Eyes and Bacopa. The others I knew. I have never had bacopa in that color but it's pretty!

I got fooled by that Bacopa too. I've never seen the orange....

Sob....only got one right....the mums.

My excuse is ignorance and being half blind but I enjoyed all the flowers, thank you.

I have not forgotten that I promised you some plant......one of these days......

Fooey, I'm too late to try - but before I scrolled down to your answers, I got them all right in my head except for Bacopa.
