Hmmm... well, Bellflower comes to mind when I look at the last one. My bellflower are just opening (a purple one) and they look similar to that. It seems there are lots of different types of bellflower. Nothing comes to mind on the other pictures. Sorry.

Your #2 is Centaurea montana, commonly known as perennial bachelor button and perennial cornflower.

Your #2 picture is Centurea Montana cornflower 'Perisan Pink'.
It's a very hardy perennial for flowerbeds. Full Sun.
I dead-head constantly to keep it flowering. One of my favorites.
