The first photo and mystery plant grows almost shrub like. I also remember seeing this at Mt. LeConte in the Appalachians…
The 2nd and 3rd photos are something I’ve never seen. The ‘seed cluster’ is about 4 inches long and probably 2-3″ in diameter at the widest point.
I would love some help with these… They are soo vibrant and beautiful!

    The plant in the first picture is Euonymus Americana and is native to the southeast. Common names are Strawberry Bush and Hearts a Bustin.

    The 2nd & 3rd pictures are of a Jack in the Pulpit seed pod.

    The first is a Strawberry Bush (Euonymus americanus) – a great little shrub to have. BUT, the deer love it, so be careful where you plant it.
    I have no idea what the second is.

    I agree with Stone that the second is voodoo lily. The leaf gives it away.
