This photo was taken 3-24-12 in San Francisco. It looks like a variety of liatris, but I can't find the specifics. It doesn't look like the spicata variety that I grow in Ohio. I've never seen this true blue-purple color before, and the shape is slightly different. If it's not a variety of liatris, what is it?
