Here are my guesses:
1. phlox?
2. Venice Mallow (99% sure)
3. Looks like balsam impatiens
4. Nicandra? (aka apple of peru)

I just googled up Venice mallow, and found out that this is a weed. I got a packet of seeds and the pictures on google make the plant look appealing, maybe I've just taken a liking for weeds...milkweed, butterfly weed, joe pye weed, jewelweed, blessed tirstle, velvet leaf...
