This will be just a quick Flower Friday today. Today I’m sharing this gorgeous, purple Blazing Star also known as Prairie Gay Feather.

We have this growing near the back of the house in the landscaping. I wish it were in a better location so we could see it more.

The pollinators love this flower. It gets covered by the baby bumblebees. What I love most about this  perennial is that it blooms all summer long.
