So I have decided that these particular flowers, which start blooming in August, and continue through the first freeze are a true favorite of my Autumn experience..... so much so that I am planting a pound of the locally harvested seeds, in the hopes that they will naturalize on the grounds.  Since they are indigenous, I feel justified in my reckless abandon in strewing them!  This is a week for planting for next year.... I collect seeds from the purple coneflowers, and phlox to "help" them spread.  I am adding several hundred Spring bulbs (as I always do each fall) and have designated about a hundred hostas to split.  I live for dirty hands.  Happy autumn gardening to all who join me in the passion.
