Flower for the Day Miami Mist 5-15-14

This lavender and white miniature is called Miami Mist (Phacelia purshii). It was growing in a churchyard in Warren County. The flowers grow in clusters. If you don't look closely you will miss the lace like fringe on the petals.  Phacelia is Greek for cluster and purshii refers to its namer, Frederick Traugott Pursh, 1774-1820.  Flower Identification thanks to Claire.
