As the title says, these are ornamentals not wild, but I'd appreciate any help in determining the exact species, especially of the yucca and the palm.

Does the first plant grow easily from seeds? It looks beautiful and I've collected some of the olive-like seeds with the intent of propagating them.

Thanks in advance.

Top one:

Harpullia pendula (courtesy JP)

Check out: viewtopic.php?t=1174

Does it grow? Yes! I have one, check out the pic, seed grown too!

The others, the palm you will probably find one that has a name on it at San Anton, the other "yucca" I'm not sure, I can't determine whether it's just a small one of the type that there are a couple of large ones at Argotti and the Trade Fair grounds, if it is you *may* find a name on it there (former location). In such case I happen to have a couple (well, three actually) growing in pots.

confirm ID 1,
ID 2 is Brahaea armata
ID 3 could be a young Yucca gloriosa (just 1 of 10 possibilities) :)

Wow, thanks! Never even heard of that palm species. I figured the yucca would be a little more confusing to identify and indeed you echo my thoughts :-D
