I saw these three plants in Samos last week..... I *think* I know what two are, but can anyone shed any light?

1) I think this must be Ornithogalum saundersiae, seen in a cafe vase and also in someone's garden?

2) I think this must be Salvia pomifera - some variants had really huge flowers. I want to try it in the garden:

3) And does anyone know what this climbing plant is? It was cultivated, not wild:

Just had a search of P jasminoides, Rob, think you've nailed it, fits the flower form and leaf form I.D.
There is also a pink form (subspecie-var rosea) Wiki
