New-to-me native species

Well, well, well. These two mysteries recently popped up in the sand of the brick patio that James built last year. Hmmm. New species to me. Euphorbia family, I bet. So I searched species in the spurge family and–VOILA!–mystery solved! These are woolly crotons (Croton capitatus var. lindheimeri). Awesome. An annual plant that's a host to the goatweed leafwing butterfly.
