Name of the plant

I believe I found the name of the plant in my encyclopedia of Gardening - Shade Gardens. It reads:

Achimenes, the monkey-faced pansy

Related to gloxinias and African violets. That's where they get the hairy leaf.

"Limelight" Hydrangea

I've lost the name of this beautiful plant.
Found name: Achimenes

This is a swamp hybiscus:

Today was our Chickasaw Garden Club meeting and the speaker was from Cleveland Florist, who spoke about orchids. He brought all colors of phaleonopsis and dendrobiums.

Back at home:
