    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. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1913/

    From the type of the leaf shape and the stigma of the flowers I can assume is a kind of hibiscus https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus
