What are these two tall plants
Hello, I am not sure what these tall plants are. They are in the front of my home and get a lot of sun in the morning. They have recently begun to show blooms so don't think they are weeds, but could be wrong. I have seen honeybees buzzing around Plant One (with the purple/blue blooms) Thank you. MD near Sligo Creek Park.
The first plant with the blue flowers is called Caryopteris.

The second plant looks like something in the aster family, perhaps the white heath aster.
