Purple wildflowers on 287?
I was wondering if someone could help me ID those pretty purple wildflowers that are blooming along the highways this time of year. I see clumps of them everywhere. There is a large patch on 22 East in Somerville, and another on 287 North approaching Basking Ridge. Can I buy these? Would I want to?
They are loose spikes of purple hyacinth-like flowers, sometimes with lavender or white clumps mixed in. They kind of resemble a butterfly bush, too.
