Hello Sensei89! Welcome to Goy, hope you like it!
Yes, I think the last pic is lambs ears, the 1st pic is an Allium, the second is what looks to me to be some sort of Pieris, the 3rd is a Heuchera, may be one called 'Lime Ricky', the 4th is also a Heuchera, looks quite like 'Peach Flambé', the 5th and 6th is an Astrantia, might be 'Ruby Wedding'. Hope this helps, I'm sure other people will get their varieties right, this is just my opinion! Happy gardening!!

i wonder if the second one is a skimmia ~ does it have red berries on in the winter?
everything else im sure libet is right. hope you enjoy GoY

i'd go skimmia for no 2 too sticki
allium spheraelon [speling needs checking] no 1
3&4 are one of the many heucheras. I now find there are so many it is very difficult to id them properly.
Astrantia 'Hapsden's blood' perhaps no 5 & 7
no8 Stachys byzantinum [lambs ears.]

welcome to GoY . if you post these pictures under the question section you 'll probably get a lot more answers too. :o)
