You may have to wait for flowering to ID them.  In the second photo the two 
on the right could be hymenocallis, I think.  The 3rd and 4th photos could 
be irises.

Can't be at all sure at this stage of growth.    Botany, being the most 
sexual of the sciences classifies plants by the  size, shape, number and 
appearance of the organism's sexual organs.  But you knew that, right? 
Patience, patience.
