Last Vestiges of Summer's Blooms

With Autumn just around the corner, Summer's blooms are rapidly fading. The flowers are putting forth one last showing before the nights turn crisp. The trees will soon be taking their turn on stage.

Surprise Lily with Black-Eyed Susan

Bat-faced Cuphea

Coleus with Black-eyed Susan

Can anyone identify this plant? At two years, it is a small shrub and expect it to get larger as it ages. I purchased it at a Master Gardener's Plant Sale and it was labeled 'Butterfly Plant'. But it is like no true Butterfly Bush (Buddleia) that I have seen before.
