Ok, so @Barb Rosen is right on the first pictures, definatly Ironweed(Veronica). Last picture is Swamp Hibiscus. I would wait until fall to try to transplant. You will need a full sun spot that keeps good moisture or plan on watering it ...alot. It is a great attractor for bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
And I am still mulling over those middle three pics...if only I could remember half of what I know I would be awesome!
Thank you Donna you have been very helpful.
I always say if you like it, KEEP it !
if you like it, or the butterflies and bees like it, then it's a keeper.
A weed is defined as a plant out of place. So if you like it and you keep it, it's not a weed!
most weeds are wildflowers or better yet food or medicine
I think the top middle one is Joe-Pye Weed. It's not supposed to be weedy and attracts tons of butterflies. I personally have never grown it so I'm no expert on it.
If the stem is somewhat reddish in color I would agree that it's Joe Pye Weed. We have it everywhere in VA and the butterflies adore it! It spreads......
the first one in the middle row looks like liriope.. if it blooms with a purple beaded type of blossom then it would definitely be liriope. It is a member of the ornamental grass family- not a weed
the first one is called "Baldwins Ironweed" to be more specific...http://www.gpnc.org/baldwins.htm
