This is a variety of mountain bluet or perennial cornflower. I found it very striking and it blooms from late spring into early summer and then may re-bloom in the fall. I thought what they named it was very descriptive of it's appearance. My Fx2 for this week.

An apt name indeed, Kathy, because of the warm colored flower in a 'cold environment'.

Lovely Foofy Friday contribution!

The name of this flower is very appropriate Kathy - I see a crown jewel in the center - such a wonderful color - Great Capture!!!!!!!!!
