Help on plant names please

I have four plants I need help to identify.  One is crocosmia a bright red - I would like to know the exact variety if possible.  The third plant (yellow) seems to spread like a weed. Thanks.

    1) Possibly houttounynia cordata
    2) One of the cultivars of Kniphofia
    3) Looks like a Lsyimachia to me
    4) Possibly Crocosmia Lucifer, that is the most popular bright red variety, and one of the tallest.

    Agree with Houttounynia
    Could the kniphofia be 'Mango Popsicle'?
    Lysimachia punctata
    If not Crocosmia Lucifer, could be 'Hellfire'

    That is Houttounynia. I have it in my garden and it is terribly invasive. I’d spray it with some weed killer if I were you! I’ve been trying to kill it for years but it is winning.

    Also had  Houttuynia in a previous garden. Pretty leaf colours, but hideously invasive. Spread everywhere, including underneath paving slabs and came up in the cracks. I’d get rid of it ASAP.
