Sounds like you have the biennual ones which will set seed after they flower. I sometimes dead head for extra flowers. Leave the seed pods til they are brown and then resow.

I have the perennial type Bowles Mauve, the leaves are slightly different in shape and colour and it has a distinctive stem of purple flowers. Really lovely plant, can get quite big and shrubby if you trim off the flowers stems. It also flowers all year round and you can easily  take cuttings

I'm just started to plant my garden and I'm trying to achieve the same thing as you ecokid. I've had long flowering rudebekias and scabious that flowered in October.

I like the look of the asters I've not grown them before. I've got some small seedlings of Bee balm which I think is an aster

Seedaholic stock a nice selection of those mentioned. I got some Fire king? and some purple ones a few weeks ago.

Really like this company, quick, the package is minimal but useful. I've found good germination rates with what ever I bought from them
