    I know the first one looks like a lilic, but it's not, i have them. The 2nd. one had little white flowers on it, they looked like lily of the valley flowers. The other one with large leafs is a small tree in my back yard. not sure about the other one. right now it's 5th tall. Good luck with id.

    I believe Chris meant Euonymous.

    I know that #2 is not a violet, I have them all over the yard. This has a white flower that looks like a lily of the vally flower. As for the Asimina triloba it has never bloomed and I have been here for 15 years. The rest right on the spot. Thank to you all.
    #2 and #4 ?

    Flower bud and stem looks just like that of a viola. Lily-of-the-Valley (Convallaria) has a short urn-shaped flower, something of that construction doesn't seem too likely to come out of those buds. But posting a close-up of the flowers would certainly help the discussion.

    The pawpaw produces curious dullish flowers. You have not noticed them, the plant is a seedling that is taking its time to bloom, or there is something about the site that is interfering with flower production - maybe too much shade or competition from adjacent trees or shrubs.

    agreed with both saltceder and ron, second looks very much like a viola to me too
