Anyone know what this wildflower (weed?) is? It's about 3'-4' tall and multibranched at the top with small star shaped purple flowers - butterflies really like it ... Growing and blooming now in Central Florida.
These look more "Frilly" than the Small Palafox ... from the photos on here ... they're more full puffs rather than individual petals Here's a more close up of the flowers .. . . I should have gotten a photo of the leaves...but didn't
Thanks everyone! I believe you've got it with the Tall Iron Weed , Vernonia angustifolia. I went today to get photos of the leaves, but I think that is it with the thin leaves and it's in Hernando County, which it is listed on the DB as recorded there.
Thanks again for all the effort!!! It's much appreciated!!
