Wild plant with pale tiny violet flowers seen on a mountain slope.
purple wood aster or Eurybia spectabilis because i think i see a purplish hue to these” getting old”, past their prime flowers. if they were white they would be white wood asters or E. divaricate. this l would be more common in georgia woods though purple one have invaded south from ny and ct. if you have more pictures of these, please send them in for a little color comparison
This is perfect, thank you!
