Hi Debra, I didn't take the photo, just selected it. The photographer's name is at the bottom of the image, growin. Hope he will pipe in here soon and let you know. To me, it looks like a verbena perhaps. Mayne not.

It's Verbena bonariensis http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/141/ but the colour is off as it is an old photo. Great plant that seems hardy here.
