The hibiscus will be a one day flower, up to 6 or 8 inches across, but will flower continuously for several weeks. You did right by trimming away the dead parts. I used to dust them with Sevin but don't anymore, it doesn't seem to matter and Sevin kills good bugs, too.

Then it is not goldenrod.

If it annoys you and you don't find it attractive, pull it out and don't feel bad about it....the plants you have in your yard are for your enjoyment, and you have the right to only have in your yard what you enjoy!

Thank you, that is exactly what I did today! It was way too big, getting up to my bedroom window.

That is what's fun about gardening - making it your own! Just out of curiosity, were the flowers up and down a stalk? It kind of looked like gaura.

The first picture shows 2 plants in front of the sage... on the left looks a little like Physostegia (Obedient plant, Paperhouse already said that) on the right the leaves resemble tradescantias (aka Spiderwort) and the little white flowers go with that (that would be Tradescantia virginiana). In the right conditions Spiderworts can really grow and take over a bit, but they are also very pretty. Sorry to see you yanked it. I hope you give the others a chance before you "weed" anymore but even experienced gardeners have accidentally pulled the wrong plant or left a weed, I sure have!

I agree that number 3 is pink Evening Primrose which was VERY invasive in my garden. Oenothera speciosa is the name to look up for that. I had yellow primrose that spread but was not at all invasive (Oenothera fructicosa) so that was unexpected!
