I know I used to know a couple of them but the first one no clue
This area was under water for several months after last years Memorial Day floods
So glad it's coming back. The sun wasn't out but it was so bright, I hope the pics are good enough for you to help 😊
I know the indian blankets, it's the white flower I can't remember
The last is across the river but was hoping you could still make it out, maaaybe?
the leaves were so pretty, I think, lol
The fifth pic, it's the yellow flowers, I am blanking
Thanks for any help

Hi, Lin, that was one of my first thoughts but went through them all and don't believe, this plant was in there
My grandfather had a plant that he called verbena on a stick, Verbena bonariensis
That was my first thought but the flowers aren't as full as I remember them being

The white one looks like some kind of gypsophila.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

It looks like Verbena bonariensis to me also. I have some coming up in my yard now.

Yellow flowers - coreopsis?
The tree is lovely but I haven't a clue what it is.

Ronnie, thank you, I'll look that up

Jay, do you have pics of yours? Do you think being underwater could have changed the growth pattern
Yes, sneeze weed, why couldn't I remember that, Smiling

Thank you Dee

Also some of these in there. I agree that the first one is the Verbena suggested. Looks like a fun spot to explore. Rolling my eyes.

Mine look like the ones in your photo, that is the normal growth in my experience.
The ones in your photo have been blooming a while, which is why the flowers are on long "columns". Here is a page from my website showing plants that have just started blooming and some that have been blooming a while.

Your Verbena looks like Verbena brasiliensis and not Verbena bonariensis. There has been a lot of confusion between the two for years.

You are correct Danita. I was reading boneriensis but thinking brasiliensis. You can see the link I gave was to brasiliensis. V. brasiliensis is the correct ID for the one in Jolana's photo.
