Default Can You ID These Flowers?

Please help me ID some more flower types photographed
around L.A.

I begin with two views of possibly the same flower. I'm
pretty sure the first (A) is a bud of the blossom (B).
You can see both he

The second flower is shown from a bunch that my niece
wanted me to buy her for her recent birthday:

Finally, here's a flower I see EVERYWHERE in Los Angeles.
I've only seen them in purple/violet and white versions:

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

I'll take the easy ones. A2 is an iris possibly one of the west coast
hybrids. C is an Agapanthus or Nile Lily.

B looks like a type of chrysanthemum to me but don't quote me on
that.

I thought it looked like an anemone-flowered mum also but the foliage is all
wrong.

He said it was a bunch of cut flowers so I was going with the premise
that the foliage will not necessarily match the flowers. But I'm
waaaaay out of those kinds of flowers nowadays. I'm losing the
ability to ID them slowly.

I think everyone who guessed gave the wrong answer. Since this is an
orchid newsgroup, the correct answers a

1 not an orchid
2 not an orchid
3 not an orchid
