Weed 1 looks like a member of the mint family. When broken off does the stem have a square cross section?

Weed 3 doesn't look like the valerian I have growing here.

Maybe dog fennel for number two?

I think number one is used as an ornamental ground cover around here, but I can't think of the name.

Could weed one in the second set be Helianthemum aka Sunrose?

Here's another shot. You can see how it's taking over the pasture:

The first one is a sida, the 2nd one is marestail/horseweed, the third one is wedelia, or creeping daisy (Sphagneticola trilobata).

The first one is Sida acuta, the second one looks like conyza canadensis with a bad case of witch’s broom( a virus) and the last one is wedelia. I’m not sure about the second one but the other 2 I’m sure of. Sida acuta is a roadside weed here in Florida but it’s actually a powerful medicinal in the hibiscus (mallow) family. Look it up.
