Gee I didn't receive anything as large as that first one in my order. Mine were more like your second link. Nothing like your third link either.
I'm moving the conversation to...Panasonic FZ150 so we don't tie this thread up.

Page one, post one, shows what I had received. Did you get any of those? I really must dig those out one of these days and toy around with them. I "Need" a close up fix!

Volunteer black eyed susans. They appeared when I didn't have any other black eyed susans on my property

Very tall coreopsis. I don't know what variety it is.

Planted this cardinal flower two years ago. It finally bloomed. It's really pretty. I wish I had more of it. I've been told it doesn't spread

Swamp Milkweed... I think. The leaves and stem are furry on these wild plants I found, whereas all the ones in my garden are not like this.

Beautiful pictures. Where did you find these plants growing?

On that swamp milkweed, I found this, "Two subspecies exist: smooth swamp milkweed (A. incarnata ssp. incarnata) is more branched, has leaves that are slightly hairy to smooth, and tends to occur in the western part of the region; downy swamp milkweed (A. incarnata ssp. pulchra (Ehrh. ex. Willd.) Woodson) is less branched, has broader, hairier leaves, and tends to occur along and closer to the coastal plain."

Neat, I found two populations of it here in NJ. One is right in the parking lot for Prospertown Lake, just down the street from Six Flags Great Adventure. The other is some man made lake that supplies the drinking water for Monmouth County NJ. They flooded part of a forest to make it which looks cool.
