Blue Curls
Trichostema dichotomum /Mint Family

I was thrilled to find this beautiful flower blooming in Frozen Head State Park in early September. It has long, curving, protruding stamens that give the plant the common name, Blue Curls. I have seen this flower in books and have wanted to see it in the wild for many years.
Annual
Where seen: Great Smoky Mountains NP, Frozen Head SP
