I found these flowers blooming at Haw Ridge in mid-September in a low area near the lake. They are a type of Spiderwort. I couldn't find it in any of my Tennessee or Southeast wildflower books; I later found out why, it is an Asian exotic. Thanks to my friend, Larry Pounds for identifying it for me! More inquiry on Google led me to learn that this pretty little flower is considered a Rank 2 Invasive of Special Concern.
