Description Bloom Color Bloom Dimensions Plant Dimensions

Purple lacy blossom similar to artichoke but smaller. Plant about 28-30 inches high, multiple upright branches, long triangle green leaves that seem to clasp stem in twos, slight fragrant scent when sniffed up close. Plant appeared this year beside old barn. Thought thistle at first but not the same blossom and not sticky. Smooth stems. Thought might be bee balm at first but not like any natives growing in area near Rockwall-Heath 33 miles due east of Dallas. Been here 25 years and first time. Considering harvest of seeds but don't want a non-southwest native.
