|Purple Fleabane (Philadelphia Fleabane...) |
And yes, there are several kinds of Fleabanes. And no, I don't know what this one is. Smooth Fleabane, I'd say by the photographs, but there is the issue of that very hairy, unsmooth background leaf — which perhaps belongs to an entirely different plant. So, perhaps more likely, Philadephia Fleabane...
