Flowering Liatris Colony Landscape 5832

You recently saw a closeup of a flowering blazing-star stalk, Liatris mucronata, so to balance that here’s a broader view from September 15th showing what a colony of these plants looks like. The land you see here is in the southeast quadrant of Wells Branch Parkway and Heatherwilde Blvd. on the Blackland Prairie at the southern fringe of Pflugerville. The dots of yellow farther back are partridge pea flowers.
