Liatris mucronata Colony Flowering 1951

Click for greater clarity and considerably larger size.

In October the Liatris mucronata, known as gayfeather and blazing-star, was having as good a season as the visiting monarch butterflies, of which I count six in this portion of the wildflower colony.

The date was October 9th, and the place was a piece of the Blackland Prairie at Wells Branch Parkway and Heatherwilde Blvd.
