Butterfly Bush and Balloon Flower

Today one of my butterfly bushes started blooming,they smell just like lilacs and you can smell them all over the yard,I have a purple and pink and white one,the pink is the most fragrant but the purple smells great also.I didn't cut them back last fall and now they are every bit of 7ft tall..They are well behaved in this part of Virginia,never reseeding..An easy to care for plant,just deadhead and it keeps blooming..Also I'll put up a picture of a balloon flower since they are about the same color.The balloon flower was a plant I wintersowed in 09..very nice and also virtually no care plant...I want to get seeds for a white one this winter and wintersow..
