Help with ID of these two plants ...

mdawdyAugust 15, 2012

I have a 3000 sq ft native plant savannah in my mid-city back yard. A summer video is attached in the Optional Link URL.

I have two plants which i purchased from a native plant supplier, and i forget what they are. BTW, i am an old computer bum and not much of a biologist; so i would appreciate help with this.

I put one pic in the image file box at the top of this post. I'll put the other image into the next post.

Hope this is OK. Thank you,

Mick

Leaves look like Polymnia canadensis. Not sure about the flowers though.
