Please can you help identify any of these?

Hello, hope you guys can help. I’ve got a number of unknown plants kicking about and would like to put a name against them. Really appreciate your help.

Is this an iris of some kind? It has large sword like leaves in a fan shape.

I get loads and and loads of these weeds but what are these two?

I think last year this had yellow flowers and seems to have spread a bit.

This thing is growing at the base of a pieris japonica

This Kniphofia - seems to have flowered super early or is it not? It’s sitting at the base of a conifer.
would anyone know the likely type and if it would repeat flower if I dead headed it in a couple weeks?

thanks again guys, I look forward to any responses!

    Photo 1 I suspect it would be a Bearded Iris. 
    Photo 2 - Most likely Linaria Purpurea, some say weedy but I like it.
    Photo 3 - Willowherb, weedy and not choice a choice plant.
    Photo 4 - ?
    Photo 5 Might be a Yew, Taxus Baccatus.
    Not grown a Kniphofia before so not very familiar with them. As for dead-heading, I think they should be dead-headed to encourage further flowering.

    Is number 4 lysimachia punctata by any chance?

    Theres some hedge woundwort next to the one pitter patter mentioned. You don't want that.

    Thanks everyone.
    B3, I’ve removed it and had a good scout around and can’t see any others for now.
    thank you.
