And not in our yard, but a linden taller than a three-story church tower was perfuming a downtown neighborhood yesterday.

The anise hyssop doesn't look quite right, but at this time I'm unable to think of what else it could be.

I believe the hyssop is lobelia...

The "bug" on the butterfly weed is a leatherwing, either a goldenrod soldier beetle or Pennsylvania soldier beetle, Chauliognathus spp., Genus Chauliognathus - BugGuide.Net

Beautiful linden tree!

Could the one labled (Hyssop) possibly be a Phacelia?
It's kind of hard to tell without the leaves.

Aggh--it was labeled as agastache (and of course not blooming when purchased).

Just looked up vipers bugloss, linrose. I think you nailed it. At least the plant is growing on the edge of the driveway and can't escape into anything but the neighbor's lawn.

Swamp milkweed has started. I've lost a lot of them over the past couple of years, I don't know why. I think this Liatris is rough blazingstar, L. aspera but I've planted so many Liatris species I get confused. It's pretty early for anyLiatris. Also I think this is Rosa carolina growing under a dogwood in the field, perhaps R. setigera. I'm getting lazy with ID. Also I think this is Hypericum frondosum, cedarglade St. John's Wort. I bought it at a nursery a half mile from me. It was just labeled St. John's Wort.
