    Not sure what that top one is. Does it have strappy leaves?

    Second one, looks like Phormium Tenax. But again, the leaves look a little upright. If it is, I don't think it needs any kind of specialist care, especially if it's already planted into the ground. They're quite hardy plants.

    The first one resembles a form of Gladiolus papilio . I may be wrong here , but if correct , lift and store dry during the winter . If in a pot , keep frost free in a cool greenhouse .

    Second looks like the widely grown Yucca flaccida ; easy and hardy in a sunny border .
