Purple hosta || Liatris aspera ~ Rough blazingstar
Solidago rigida(or Oligoneuron rigidum) ~ Stiff Goldenrod || I’m confused & maybe this plant is also. This looks like roughleaf dogwood (Cornus drummondii), however its blooming now. Anyone with thoughts??
Spiraea ~ Spirea || Heptacodium miconioides ~ Seven Son Flower
