I'd have said:

1. Cornflower
2. Monkey Flower (Mimulus). It's a cute native!

Yes, the other is Mimulus ringens known as Monkey Flower. It recently changed families and names so it was difficult for me to look up under it's old name of Scrophulariaceae.

I went outside and looked closely at part of a blossom that had fallen off the "Monkey Plant". I saw two eyes., so identity confirmed.

I thought that it was a very pretty blossom, now it is kind of creepy. I can't imagine enjoying one of the more prominent monkey face blossoms looking up at me. The plant does indeed like its current location, nice and wet and shady. It's still in a tray up against the house, under the hose bib and shaded by a giant Burning Bush.

I will take more pics of the 1st and 3rd as they bloom.

The Cupid's Dart is a great plant, well-behaved for me. Can't think of the name for the second plant...

Lisa, I have been wondering about what you have. It is very nice that some have been identified. I do hope you enjoy them.

When I first this thread back a few months ago, I thought to myself, I have ten acres of Native Perennial Weeds Without them, the ground would be bare.

I don't know that 9 was identified, but I am pretty sure it is milkweed for Monarch butterfly attracting. I have it all over my yard.

I'm also curious as to the three plants in the next photo. The small plant at the bottom is sweet woodruff, the middle phlox?, and the top??

The first picture is "for sure" Cupid's Dart. I found one at the garden center dollar sale and brought it home to spread the love.

Some of the other plants above that I thought were milkweed are also turning out to be Money Plant.

Still more to bloom.

A new chartreuse plant popped up in a few pots and now one is in bloom.

The smaller woody plant was from an exchange, and I would like to know what it is. It was holding its own but not thriving in the shade, so I moved it to a sunnier spot.

The chartreuse plant is talinum limon. I love adding it to my planters for the bright green foliage as well as the airy pink flowers. Seeds are easily saved for next season.
