This is the Himilayan Jewel Weed -- And it's beautiful. It's a good 4 1/2 ft tall, and the pink blossoms look a little like a snapdragon. So pretty. I have to keep an eye on this one though because it's apt to take over the garden. But it looks beautiful as a backdrop to my ferns.
Here's my coneflower. I think I'll try to get several varieties for next year.
The Astilbe are beginning to wane. But I love their floaty/frothy look.
