Fall Bloomer in the Prairie

This was also in the prairie at Shaw Nature Reserve along with the Gentian (See previous entry).  It appears to be Slender False Foxglove (Agalinis tenuifolia), formerly known as Gerardia tenuifolia.  It is a beautiful native, late-season annual.

  1. Beautiful plant. Could it be a species of Gerardia, also called False Foxglove (Agalinis is the genus scientific name)? Slender Gerardia (Agalinis tenuifolia) grows in meadows here in Northern NJ, and it looks similar to your photo.

What do you think?
