Help ID some Georgia wildflowers please.

DeLand, FL(Zone 9b)

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.

Thanks! I think you're right on. Hopefully someone knows the other one.

Try Purpletop Vervain, Verbena bonariensis

Blenheim, New Zealand

VineWorld has just said what I thought !!

Verbena bonariensis

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

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-
