I saw this flower in the landscape at a branch bank. I showed this to a Pike Store employee and they identified this as a pincushion but have not been able to find this on the interned that matches a pincushion.

    Seems to be locally native.

    I believe the common name is ‘aster’. They are perennial.

    I do believe that is a Stokes Aster as mention above. Not sure what variety though.

    I think the person at Pike’s was confusing it with a Scabiosa columbaria and I can see some similarity bu it’s not that. I’d go with stone’s identification.

    It is Stokesia laevis and Stone is right. Thanks to everyone for helping identify this plant.
