Your photography skills are only outdistanced by your gardening skills. This is a great picture of a very attractive flowering plant (Liatris Gayflower). I shall be looking for it in my locale.
Wow...thanks :) Don't give me too much credit. I just stick it in the ground and let it grow. And for the photography, I let the camera do the work. I set it on auto mode and try to pick the best natural light (morning or evening (or a cloudy day) and that's all I do.
wondering how much shade these will tolerate. and how close together i can plant the tubers.
