Here is the Obedient Plant, in all of its glory, sometimes called False Dragonhood.
It is easy to plant and propagate, easy to pull up and share with friends.
A late blooming Hosta boarder with glorious stalks of purple bells.
Ever faithful Phlox.
Callicarpa shrub that I pruned which resulted in massive clusters of purple berries. Winter birds feast on them.
Crepe Myrtle, also a candidate for harsh pruning each year.
I had to add this photo, because the yellow flowers were such a contrast to everything else that was purple.
These foxy grasses have a purple tint.
The ubiquitous roadside Loosestrife.
Hydrangeas turning their fall purple.
Japanese painted fern.
A lovely Rose of Sharon.
The darker Butterfly bush bloom.

The usual Butterfly bush, still flowering.
