A picture of the foliage would help but it is probably Conoclinium coelestinum.

It is a species of Dichanthelium, maybe Broadleaf Rosettegrass (Dichanthelium latifolium). As a group, plants in that genus are sometimes called panic grasses because they used to be in the Panicum genus (some botanists have recently argued in favor of lumping them back in).

By the way, the plant has flowers. They just aren't very showy.:)
