The pink fuzzy wilflower was in the Weeki Wachee Preserve and the purple fuzzy wildflower came along with a fig tree from the Nature Coast Botanical Gardens, so both are from West Florida.

I don't recall seeing anything quite like the second one and I've had a few gardens in Florida. Ageratum, maybe.

The second one looks just a bit like White Butterbur.  I don't think that's what it is, if it's growing out of those little paired leaves, but that's slightly closer than never!
