    Brian is right, pineapple sage, beautiful. Bees love as one of the few things blooming in early fall. Mine blooms in October.

    Maybe a type of sage (Salvia). This might be pineapple sage (Salvia elegans), or one of its cultivars. Bruised leaves should give a pineapple aroma. the flower stalk will be up right as its blooms is unfolding. If this is S. elegans, it is edible and can also use for tea.

    From the type of the leaf shape and the stigma of the flowers I can assume is a kind of hibiscus
