Thanks to those that helped me with the last flower I needed help with. Can anyone tell me what kind of flower this one is? The bees seem to enjoy it this time of year. Thanks, juzzer

This is Liatris spicata or Blazing Star. It's a North American native to eastern and central states. The bees seem to like it as much as we do.

My garden is full of those and I have not seen any honeybees on them. I see many natives bees hitting them hard. I planted for my honeybees though.

Thanks for the quick response. My mom saw them and wasn't sure it were bumbles or honeybees on the flowers she saw.....they ended up being bumbles. I guess I need to educate her more on the differences. She did purchase some recently for planting and I am eager to get some in the ground as well since they are so cool looking, whether the honeybees will enjoy them or not. It looks like a blossom that would offer something to honeybees. juzzer
