Can you help me identify these plants
? I'm trying to identify 1) the purple flowers, 2) the little white flowers at the bottom, and 3) the big green leaves.

These are all plants from my grandmother's garden that were used on her casket at her burial. I am working on an art project recreating the pattern from this blanket of flowers, and there are a few that I can't identify. As the project is a surprise for those who actually know what she grew in her garden, I can't ask them. Can you help me?
(If it helps you to know the season and region, this photo was taken March 28 in Lee County, Alabama.)
I thought that #3 might be hosta, but I haven't been able to find hosta with leaves like that. And I thought #2 might be Queen Anne's lace, but on the day of the funeral, my mother said it wasn't.
