A few long-wanted things:

butterfly weed, perfect for attracting monarch butterflies;

cosmos, tricky to grow from seed, and there they were, a nice-sized specimen.

The Asiatic lilies simply get better and better, redder and redder.

And oenothera, or evening primrose. The garbagemen hate these, and have spent three years tossing garbage can lids right on them, nearly destroying the bed. I have been able to save a few and transplant them out of spite's reach, I hope. I was told "they'll spread rapidly," so I hope to see that proved true soon.
