Northern Blazing Star–Liatris scariosa - A spike of rayless, pink-lavender flower heads in interrupted clusters on a tall, smooth or downy stem.
The flower heads and broad leaves with well-separated stalks are characteristic of the very similar Liatris species found in the same range; these may eventually prove to be variants of a single species.
