    Is the yellow flowering plant in the first set of pics a butterfly bush. I've seen them yellow before.

    According to Ms Butler it is a breed of Solidagos. Type of golden rod.

    Here are a few pics of some plants that I do not have a clue what they are.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions!

    The first two are the same plant and the flower heads weight the plant down so much that it lays down. Never see it flower, just creates the cockleburr looking seed heads.

    The last one is low-growing and has a minty smell. Flowers in spring.

    To get the correct answers to your questions try doing some of your own research instead of having everyone else do it for you or start paying everyone to do your job. This website may help www.midwestlandscapeplants.org

    The first two photos are of Rattlesnake master, or Eryngium yuccifolium.

    I cannot see the bottom photo well enough to be sure.

    I can understand someone wanting answers for one or two plants if they cant find the answers themselves but to post pictures of several plants 5 or more for everyone else to figure out, to me is just being lazy.

    Yes, it is lazy, and I am also noticing that these are common plants, and that suggests that the op knows few plants if any, and has a lot to learn if he is willing to make the effort.
