    I’m not an expert of these two plants. To my eyes your the leaves of your plant look like those of Illicium floridanum (eliptical shape, leaves are alternate, crushed leaves are fragrant). Carolina allspice aka Sweet shrub (Calycanthus floridus) has opposite leaves, and of course fragant flowers. I only have the photo to go by, you would be the best judge since you had the plant in person.

    I agree that the top is a Viburnum. The second one’s flower looks like the flower from our Sweet Shrub. Does it have a wonderful aroma? The leaves look different, but here is one I found on a google search.

    1-Looks like a type of Viburnum. Sorry, I can’t tell for certain which one this is. Check out Viburnum plicatum group and Viburnum lantanoides (hobblebush). 2- Maybe Florida anise (Illicium floridanum).

    The red wine colored plant is a native sweet shrub. Often found in wooded areas sweet shrubs have a wonderful sweet smell when blooming in spring.
