Lilac (syringa): This may be a lilac but it's hard to be sure without seeing flowers. If it is, lilacs produce fragrant trusses of flowers in blue, purple, pink, white in the spring. Lilacs need full sun (or light shade where summers are hot), and regular water. Prune just after flowers are spent to encourage new shoots and better flowering for the following year. Feed with a slow release or organic fertilizer formulated for blooming shrubs about once a year just as the buds are beginning to…

Glossy Privet (ligustrum lucidum): This is a glossy privet, which grows to 20-40 feet and has clusters of white flowers in late spring and early summer. A large crop of dark purple fruit follows. It is poisonous to humans and stains whatever in fall on. The tree can also self-sow, with the potential to become weedy.

Azalea (rhododendron species): Azaleas are a very popular shrub due to their beautiful spring blooms.  They grow best in part shade to part sun. These shrubs like acidic soil and the main thing to keep in mind is to fertilize it on a regular schedule with an azalea type fertilizer (there are several on the market) during its growth and bloom cycles and only prune it right after the blooms fall off or you will cut off next spring's blooms.

Rose Cultivar (rosa): This is a rose, although we aren't able to identify the specific cultivar for you. You could try contacting your local garden center or find a nearby rose society to help narrow the field. These plants like full sun, regular feeding, adequate summer water and protection from many possible diseases and pests.  Prune in early spring or only if you have diseased or dead canes.

Forsythia (forsythia): Forsythias are deciduous shrubs mainly from Eastern Asia whose yellow flowers open just before the leaves come on in very early spring. Popular in gardens and as cut stems for floral arrangements. We can't be certain of your exact kind, though the most common is a hybrid called Forsythia x intermedia that is represented in gardens by about a dozen or more named cultivars.

Need Close Up Of Bud: Sorry, but we can't see certain details clearly enough to identify. Please try taking a close up of the terminal bud at the end of a branch.  This might be Acer platanoides, the Norway maple. But we would need to see the terminal bud to be sure.

Bougainvillea (bougainvillea): The flowers are bougainvillea.  A South American native, it does not tolerate much frost but is a fast-growing, vigorous plant that needs a sturdy support such as a wall or fence. It needs full sun and moderate water. Bougainvillea blooms best in nutritionally poor soils. The true flowers are the small white ones in the center of the colorful bracts. Many are thorny so be careful!
