First one is probably Vinca major..
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

I agree,
#1 Periwinkle (Vinca major) https://uswildflowers.com/deta...


#2 does look like Juniperus, here's a photo for comparison

Periwinkle is NOT native, but rather a very destructive European import!
Good luck in eradication....

Second plant looks like eastern red cedar...
Highly desirable.

Please forgive my error ... it's definitely not a native, don't know what I was thinking. Vinca major is invasive in many areas and it's listed as a severe threat in S.C. https://www.se-eppc.org/southc...
