Liatris pycnostachya Plant Developing 6689

The one above is Liatris pycnostachya. Its buds and flowers were still a long way off—this is a fall-blooming species—but look at the developmental patterns in this earlier stage. Below you see a lead plant, Amorpha canescens.

Lead Plant 6737

These pictures are from a June 4th visit to the Diamond Grove Prairie in southwest Missouri with Scott Lenharth, who identified the plants for me.
