What is Blooming in the Habitat

Hoary vervain (Verbena stricta) is one of my favorite native wildflowers.

It is blooming in the habitat now.  The plant has beautiful purple-blue flowers and blooms for at least 6 weeks.  It gets 2 feet tall and prefers drier soil conditions.  I always see bumblebees visiting the flowers, as well as butterflies and solitary bees.
