Little lilac asters, I think.
Often they are hugging the rocky hillsides and ledges along the highway.
I like them, they are tough, appreciate dry conditions and show up in the fall after much of the color is gone from the trees. At a time when fewer and fewer blooms are around for pollinators, bees are always hovering.
Gail at clay and limestone, Wildflower Gardening In Middle Tennessee hosts Wildflower Wednesday.
To share your wildflowers, join in a Celebration of all Wildflowers on the Fourth Wednesday of Each Month.
I always learn a lot from Gail’s posts and she is kind enough to allow my humble submissions to join the party.
