Pic from yesterday, found in pinewood forest in AL near FL border, near a lake. Lens cap & fingertip for scale. TIA!

#1 was the only one of its' kind that I noticed. 6-8" across.

#2 was numerous, felt like fuzzy paper. About 2.5-3.5" across.

Tiffany, did you ever get ID's on these two? I really love the one in the first photo and I'm curious as to what it might be!

#2 reminds me somewhat of Tropical Mexican Clover (Richardia brasiliensis)

Hi, TY for asking! Not yet. I may need to revisit that spot & take more pics. I'm most curious about #1 too since it was the only one I saw and has such an attractive form.

Elephantopus was suggested elsewhere for the fuzzy one: http://meltonwiggins.com/elephantopus.html I don't think it's Richardia, at least not a Richardia I've encountered before. (R. brasiliensis and scabra.)

One pic of a rosette isn't usually enough to ID them but I know others, like me, think it's fun to try to investigate. Will add more pics here if/when I'm able to revisit. (Could be a few weeks, next couple weekends I have other plans.)

Ahh, that second one does look more like Elephantopus and there are a few that grow in that area:
