Some woodland plants in Mississippi - need ID's

Bella Vista, AR(Zone 6b)

Here are a few of the interesting plants from my recent trip to the Tupelo Mississippi area State Parks. We were at Trace, Tombigbee, and Tishomingo State Parks. I am not sure what pic #1 or pic #2 are. Pic #3 is Mayapple (?) Not sure what pic#4 is. Pic #5 is mountain laurel.

Your fourth picture is a Styrax sp., though I don't know what species might be found in Mississippi state parks. Maybe a Styrax americanus? A picture of the whole tree might have helped; maybe not.

Interesting array of plants, to be sure.

Could pic #2 be ramps?

Last one appears to be Kalmia latifolia.

Coon Rapids, MN(Zone 4b)

#2 is not ramps, although I don't know what it is.
