Not an expert by any means, but I do love flowers and blooming shrubs.

I think photos #1&2 are Turks's Cap Lily
#3-Crimson Bee Balm
#4 Rosebay Rhododendron

Not much difference really in Rhododendron and Mt Laurel. Both are in the heath family Ericaceae. The blooms on Mt Laurel are a little smaller and have some pinkish markings inside the bloom. They also bloom about a month to six weeks earlier than Rhododendron.

Sorry Pete, guess we were tying at about the same time
