    With the wealth of brain power here, I'm hoping someone here can help identify these 3 plants. Any help appreciated.

    Gene, I think the first one is Lamium. Your picture is too far away to see the clusters and leaf serrations.

    According to my bride, who is knowledgeable in such matters:

    Plant#1) Spicey Globe Basil

    Plant #2) Amsonia 'Blue Star'

    Plant #3) Globe Amaranthus or Gomphrena

    FWIW, I've not the first clue, but suggest you keep some moisture on them anyway & if you get a rash, shoot two flats @ 16 & then see a dermatologist;-)

    Plant 1 looks like a varity of basil. Smell it. If its basil, make some fresh pesto, and enjoy it on pasta.

    You can take a horticulture but you can't make her think.
