    Hi Sherry! I asked a friend who has worked at the Philly Botanical Gardens and, off the top of her head, she said flower #6, purple, is a Lupine and #9, the purple bell shaped flower is a Platycodon or Chinese Bellflower. Hope this helps. Love, Cathy

    I’ll contradict the botanist 😉
    The coneflower I think is a helinium (bumpy petals), the next is verbena, the next a monarda (?), anemone, then a physostegia (lupines not blooming now) , then lastly the purple bell I agree is a platycodon.
