1. A friend of mine took this photo at a botanical garden in New Zealand.

2. The second plant is a bush.
She doesn't think it's abelia.
She said it has mauve flowers. But the plant is not blooming now.

The first plant reminds me of a Toad-lily (Tricyrtis sp. or hybrid), in the Lily Family (Liliaceae).

I'm not sure what the shrub is, but I am most curious.

Larisa, I'm glad you are still active on the Forums. It is wonderful to see how you have accurately identified so many plants over the years.

Thanks Mark!
I was thinking about Tricyrtis sp., But it seems to me that the plant in the photo has a more compact structure.
Toad Lily has stems of leaves, but here lush leaf plant has a leaf coming out of a leaf. Slightly similar to Setcreasea in growth structure.

But my friend promised to show bloom when possible. Then we can find a more precise definition.
