Today's Flower

This was actually taken earlier in the year. I have no idea what it is called, other than it also comes in white? Love to know its name?

It looks like liatris (common name - gay feather) to me - one of my favorites!

Hi Gill,
It looks like a flower I have called Gay Feather.
Hope you're having a great day.

Beautiful flower Gill. I don't really know my flowers apart from the more well-known ones. Love the color on this one.

Becca said...

I think it looks similar to a double Larkspur (delphinium) but I am thinking akalittleeva is probably more on track with the liatris.

Tammy...ah....thank you for the visit. I just joined this growing group today. I just love pictures. I have a wonderful garden in my backyard and I seem to be out there snapping a great deal. I can't wait to share.

I love the picture you haven taken. I really don't like to see winter on the way. I guess it opens a whole new world to photography out there.

What a beautiful, soft lilac colour! I don't know the flower, but it is so beautiful!

lovely liatris, yes such a pretty color isn't it? and that stem of blossoms is so soft and fluffy :) my husband grows bushels of these in the public garden he maintains. they are quite wonderful in large groups.

Love the photos! I have no idea of the flower's name, either, but I've never seen Toronto, so I really enjoyed seeing those.

How well do you think it would grow in the climate, here, Gill? It is beautiful. And if there is a purple flower - I need it! All of them!!!

It is Kansas GayFeather...they grow wild out in my field, in the pretty lilac that you posted, as well as white. They are really lovely, aren't they?
