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,

I don't see the first image but the second one is Campanulastrum americanum.

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