It is very common to find Blue Mistflower (Conoclinium coelestinum) growing around here. Smiling

Thanks Mirian and Danita. While the Ageratum houstonianum is close, the Blue Mistflower is definitely the same plant. Thumbs up Thank You!

HARD TO IDENTIFY BUT LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE FISCELIA (spelling may be incorrect)

Welcome! Allan. Are you thinking of Phacelia? There are many different ones, here's a picture of one:



I think the ID plant is more likely Danita's suggestion of Conoclinium though:

Thanks Allan. Danita lives in the same town that I do, and knows a LOT about plants, so I'm going to trust her judgement on this one. I do greatly appreciate your time and effort in trying to helping me though!! Thumbs up
