    I am in zone 6, southern IL. First two photos are closeups of the two plants in the third photo. Fourth photo the plant has already been trimmed back for the fall but has purple spike type flowers. Fifth is of a golden rod type plant. They would look much better had we not had 105 mph winds and wing-dinger type storms this past spring. Thanks for any help ID'ing these.

    Thanks much, appreciate the response. I think your choices for #1 and 2 are spot on, but #3 isn't hypercum and #4 isn't forsythia, I do know that.

    Here's a better pic of the fourth one w/flowers still on it and the fifth one again at different distance. Also adding a new one that I almost forgot about. Thanks again!!

    Yep, one of the Solidagos - possibly one of the German hybrids that are currently making the rounds.

    Not sure if it's 'Mai Nicht' or not,. but definitely a blue Salvia (sage).

    Coreopsis verticillata 'Moonbeam'.
