It's an Echinacea, one of these species:

Echinacea pallida
Pale Purple Coneflower (Echinacea pallida)
Echinacea sanguinea

Well then, I would guess the pale purple, as the other has less petals.
Thank You!

I'm only seeing about 10 ray flowers per flower (they look like petals.) There are two Echinacea flowers, one under the other, in your photo. Echinacea sanguinea used to be considered a subspecies of Echinacea pallida so I'm guessing they might be hard to tell apart. Maybe Jay will check in with a guess.
