From Colorado

!. Rudbeckia sp, one of the plants called Black-eyed Susan (along with Thunbergia and maybe others.)

2. Eritrichium sp.  The experts may not agree on the correct species epithet, as I learned recently after seeing this plant in the New Mexico mountains.  Alpine Forget-Me-Not or King of the Alps.

3. Looks like Yellow Salsify, an alien.

Speaking of which, your pretty purple aquatic from Florida is the eeeeevile invasive Water Hyacinth.  Look for Hyacinth Glider dragonflies on it before it gets eradicated.
