With little knowledge, I'm slowly turning an acre field into a garden! This is my first gardening attempt, so there's such a lot to learn! 🐝🦋🌻

I agree with @gardengimp that looks like liatris because they flower top to bottom

Agree it's liatris. I have heavy wet clay soil and it's does well.

Thanks all @Elaine.colville @nej @gardengimp ! Much appreciated! Good to know that it likes clay soil! Does it clump and spread?

It does @SylviaDavies , they grow from underground corms.
