My guesses would be:
1. Alyssum
2. Tecoma, orange cultivar
3. Oleander
4. Duranta
5. Tecoma, yellow cultivar

I'm not sure about the tecomas, though, since I'm not all that familiar with them.

I agree with Audrey.
1. Lobularia maritima (Sweet Alyssum) Might be Lobularia maritima 'Snow Crystals'
2. There are a lot of cultivars as well as hybrids out there. It maybe Tecoma stans
Orange Jubilee or Tecoma X smithii Orange Bells
3. This one stumped me as an Oleander - Nerium oleander as I have grown lots of
these and never saw a seedpod like that. So I looked and while called oleander
as a common name, it is a Cascabela thevetia that seems to come in yellow and
orange. Same family, Apocynaceae as Nerium oleander but not the same
genus. Very cool.
4. Lots of similar cultivars available but maybe a Duranta erecta Sweet Memories
5. Tecoma stans

I agree, too.
Cascabela thevetia, formerly known as Thevetia peruviana.
