two statuesque, scented, butterfly-attracting plants for fall awesomeness

It’s always bittersweet when the bugbane and the joe pye weed start flowering.  They are two of my favourite plants and I have to wait almost all summer for their beautiful flowers and sweet scents.  But their flowers mean summer is over.  Let’s hope for a long, warm fall!

And while we’re at it, the Bee Balm and Sedum Autumn Joy look pretty good in fall too:
