Your native wildflower looks similar to Stylophorum diphyllum, Celandine poppy.
1. is a hellebore, Helleborus x hybridus
4. Pachysandra terminalis
Evil vine is bittersweet, an invasive, Celastrus orbiculatus

  1. possibly Liriope

I think your native wildflower is a waterleaf, perhaps Virginia Waterleaf. It looks exactly like my Virginia Waterleaf, but I have to admit I am not familiar with the other waterleaf species, so I can't be sure.

Thanks for replies. I finally found my order list...of the native plants I'd ordered and recently planted. So I think the mystery plant is one of the following:

virginia bluebell

green cone flower

great blue lobelia

blue wood aster

joe pye weed

??

I DID google all their photos, but it doesn't seem to positively match with any of the images...so I'm sorta stumped!

Tx!

It sure looks like Green Headed Coneflower/Rudbeckia laciniata. Link below for good photos. There is also a cultivar called 'Herbstsonne', a big and beefy version that is more in trade, so you may have bought that one. Either way, a pretty plant.

The vine appears to be Bittersweet Nightshade (Solanum dulcamara). Both the leaf shape and flower shape are distinctive. Here is a link to some images on my Web site.

Thanks for replies guys! Interesting on bittersweet nightshade...the last link said something like "all parts of the plant are toxic to humans and wildlife". So I would take that to mean that the berries that come out in the Fall serve no use to the local birds...? If that's the case, and it's also invasive, then I think I'm gonna cut it back right away. (I can't get it at the root because it's located in an inaccessible area....)

Regarding your troubled viburnum, looks like a mapleleaf viburnum. Are you going to keep it in a container? If so you may want to repot it into a pot twice the size of what it is in. Prune back any dead wood. But I'd plant it in your garden if I were you. It only grows 3-6 ft. tall. So it won't take up alot of space.

The berries on the ground sure look like mulberries, though I've never seen white ones like that.
