Plants in sunroom need ID. New owner of house. Thanks.

Hello. I've recently purchased a house and need help identifying some plants so that I can tend to them. Any help appreciated.

The last one is an outside rose. What type is it? Thanks again.

The last one. You should be able to tell if it is a hybrid tea or floribunda when it blooms. If you have a single rose on a stem, then it is likely a tea rose. If it blooms in clusters, then it is a floribunda. The rose needs to be cut back. You could get help with that in the rose forum.

The sixth and seventh pictures are pelargoniums, sometimes called geraniums

The first and second pictures are agave and crassula species. They are both succulents. One of them could be aloe vera.

Most of the plants surviving in the sunroom are succulents or plants for dry environments. Most of them need to be cut back and or repotted.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

#3 is probably an abutilon, or 'flowering maple' (not a real maple)

Thanks all. I had already done some cutting back. I'll do some research and do some more. Don't want to kill anything by being over zealous. Also, would love to know what is no.4. I will take some better pictures - It has shed a load of pod like structures. They were all gathered underneath. Thanks again.

Yeah, I would love to know what #4 is too; it is amazing! Your picture won't enlarge for me, so I can't see much detail on the leaves. A closer up pic of the leaves as well as a pic of the "pods" if you still have some, would help.

The 5th one looks kind of like an oleander.
