    Nice pictures but man, on dialup it takes forever to load.

    I'm not gonna be much help since they are all forbs and I'm a loong way from Arkansas.

    If it were around here, I'd say #3 reminds me of Meadowrue, although the leaves look too thick and leathery for that. It's just the leaf shape I'm keying in on.

    #5 reminds me either of a Columbine or a geranium of some type.

    So, since you know what they are, do you intend to leave us in the dark?

    1) Canada Lily
    2) Jack in the pulpit
    3) Blood root
    4) Trillium
    5) Jeffersonia diphyllia. Hard to identify for sure without a bloom
