No 1 - sorry SBG, not a primula, it's a Verbena, could be "Tapien"
Agree with 2 & 3

Sorry Beattie #1 is a primula (look at the leaves) no idea which one though... poor photos

Looking at the leaves is why I thought it was a Verbena, Moongrower. Compare the leaf shape above with the ones in this pic -

The ones above are yellower, but the shape is essentially the same. And the same as the ones in my front garden, if they've survived the winter and the drought, and the landrover repairs carried out on top of them. I'll have a look with a camera tomorrow. ;-)

1. is Verbena, ok, though I can see why you would say Primula.

#2's full name: Tradescantia pallida 'Purpurea'

At last! A name for the purple Tradescantia that I had several cuttings of from my daughter in the south! At one point she rented a flat from a friend and this plant was on the balcony. We knew it was a Tradescantia, but didn't know it's full name - now we do! :o)))))
