I took a trip to Georgia and saw some pretty wildflowers along the roadside. So, I stopped and photographed a few. Can anyone help I'D these? The pinkish looking one reminded me of snapdragon flower and waxflower foliage. The one with tiny purple flowers my husband said looked like caspia. The white one is fuzzy kind of like dusty miller. Thanks.

#1 is an Agalinis sp, probably A. purpurea. [HYPERLINK@www.google.com]
not sure about #2
#3 looks like a Gnaphalium sp, maybe G. obtusifolium. [HYPERLINK@www.google.com]

I have grown Verbena bonariensis for years and #2 doesn't look much like it - the flower clusters are too sparse.

Hmm, not sure. I do know that number 2 had a hollow type of stem if that helps at all.

When a flower grows in the wild it isnt as 'lush' as the ones we grow at home with favorable conditions- look instead at how the leaves, flowers and entire plant are put together-
