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!

bump! These never did get identified. The first one is some kind of thistle, but I don't know what kind. Anyone able to ID it better? And the second one is unknown.

The first one is bull thistle after flowering, the fluff carries the seeds. No idea on the second.

See if you think the second one might be:
Eupatorium havanense
Or
Conoclinium coelestinum
