Ontario blazing star, Liatris cylindracea

These are called cylindric, barrelhead, dwarf or Ontario blazing star. Which one do we like best? And that's the sort of question that comes up when there's not much else to say about a blazing star that's not that much different than all the other blazing stars. Fortunately, they're all beautiful. Barrelheads grow in AL, AR, DE, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY(T), MI, MN, MO, NY(E), OH, TN(T), WI, and ON. Washtenaw Co MI, 8/18/11. Aster family, Asteraceae.
