The one thing to look for when photographing flowers is your background colors. The purple against the green really makes the blooms pop! So move around to find that great color combination.

Blazing star is one of about 15 species of Liatris native to Florida. This species is occasionally found in sandhills and flatwoods nearly throughout the state (Wunderlin, 2003). It flowers from summer to fall.
