Found these in an semi-open field with a few trees. They’re a little over a foot tall, maybe still growing, and recently started blooming with tiny little blooms.

    I woulda said agalinis purpurea…. And, here’s pics of agalinis tenuifolia: Which has little to distinguish it from the purpurea that I grow… Both are annuals, and… With their apparent parasitic habit, they’re difficult to transplant or grow in a garden… So…. You’ll want to protect the patch. They seen to benefit from a late winter mowing (to keep down the brush). I also grow a couple of aureolaria varieties, which seem to be perennial, and just as fussy as the agalinis.

    Looks like a pretty good match to the threadleaf. If anyone has any other thoughts they would be welcome. Interestingly another area has Downy Yellow False Foxglove (Aureolaria Virginica)which gets much taller.
