Here are 3 more plants (from right to left) whose identification I am unsure of.

Plant 1: Is it White Snakeroot?

Plant 2: Is it Common Spicebush? My field guide said the leaves would be strongly aromatic; they smelled like a weaker sassafras, so I am not sure if that qualifies as "strongly" aromatic.

Plant 3: I have no idea what this is and I could not describe it well enough to find a matching image.

Thank you!

...and #2 really does look just like a Common Spicebush, as you suspected. "Weak sasafrass" is a good description of how it often smells.
