A typical fall combination of wildflowers
From September 28 on the prairie in Pflugerville, here’s a typical fall scene in central Texas. The purple is known as gayfeather or blazing-star (Liatris mucronata). The yellow flowers at the top are goldenrod (Solidago spp.), while the scattered smaller yellow flowers are broomweed (Amphiachyris dracunculoides).
