White Liatris Flower Spike by Broomweed Flowers 4733

Although most flower spikes of Liatris mucronata are purple, it’s not that unusual to see an occasional white one. I photographed this white gayfeather spike east of Interstate 35 in the town of Buda on October 8th. By now you may recognize that the many yellow wildflowers in the background are broomweed, Amphiachyris dracunculoides.
