beach false foxglove

Here is Agalinis fasciculata in the family of Scrophulariaceae:

This flower was found growing south of Opelika, AL, along route 51 in late September, 2011.  This plant is native to the United States and can be found throughout the southeastern states.  Though it is common here on the eastern side of Alabama I have not seen this flower in either the Jackson area nor the Delta.  I imagine it likes higher elevations (relatively speaking, Opelika is about 500 feet higher than Jackson), though this is just a guess.
