Here's two pics that I made larger of that plant which is around 3-4' tall. Nope no flowers just leaves turning and likely insect damage. I was thinking maybe nandina but on 2nd thought leaves are thicker.

Thanks

No offense but I don't think that's aster. This plant has very large leaves, leathery feel 4-5" long.

ok no offense taken..it is hard to tell..... That being said, Joe pye weed is my call, I was looking more at the seeds than the leaves. The shrub I am going to have to go with red twig dogwood. Look for the newest branches on the plant and see if they are a bright red color, If that is the case you need to thin out 1/3 oldest brances of the plant every year to keep the red twig looking good. Old branches are just a boring brownish gray color.

That one shrub that hasn't been id'd looks like an Itea of some sort.

You can see the dried flower heads around the leaves.

I have several Itea virginica 'Little Henry' and those leaves look very similar to mine around this time of year. If that shrub gets long white flowers in the early summer I bet it's an Itea.

Yes, I can see the spent flowers and this is Itea Virginica.
