Growing Cannas, large and small. Canna lilies are wonderful in the garden. Growing fast, the full size selections quickly form a handsome large-leaved screen or an island of tropical-looking foliage from about 3 to 4 feet tall.. And then the show begins, and goes on for weeks and weeks. Huge, iris-like flowers begin to open, and before you know it, your canna lily plants have become the undisputed Orange Yellow Lily

this is a chrysanthemum. from the looks of it, within a few weeks, you will notice buds starting to form. it's a fall flowering plant, though. the flowers will be about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Unknown Plant

looks like you've been taking pictures in my yard! i have this plant, but it was incorrectly identified as a stonecrop sedum. i dont' know what it is, but the flowers are much like the chrysanthemum. and it will come back every year. it, too, is a fall flowering plant. it's safe to break off the dead stems. it will be taller next year, too.
peace
