Liatris spicata (Gayfeather or Blazing Star)

Another American prairie flower - not native to these parts. How wrong of me. I should confess I also listened to some South American music whilst driving to Rome this past weekend. How bold. I should have stuck with Vivaldi, but I was falling asleep!

Last year I made fun of FLW when I posted this flower that he so adored. This year I’ll not even bother telling you who he is… not a gardener, for sure!
