Purple Bloom in Napa Valley

I'm not familiar with these flowers. I sort of just snapped it while driving around in the Wine Country in Napa Valley, California. Looking around for images in Google search, I believe it's Chicory (Cichorium intybus), but I could very well be wrong. Your guess is as good as mine.

That's what sucks about snapping on random plants you come across when you're not a botanist. Still, it's fun looking for a matching plant later when you actually have to name and describe the photo.

Do you know what this plant is?

All the chicory I know of features a blue flower. This what i found online for chicory ...Chichory-1024x768.jpg

Could they be related to echinacea?

Maybe? I have not clue :)

Good photo. I like your idea of seeking out things to photograph and post on STEEMIT, for all to see and enjoy.

I love purple.. That's a beautiful flower

Great shot! I also would say these are Cosmea.

I took this pic in my parents garden and these flowers look really similar :)

They're really pretty :)

Wow nice photography...thanks for sharing

Beautiful shot! The flower looks just like purple cosmos.

They look like Cosmos to me. Great picture!

Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.

wow really nice photography

Beautiful flowers @adonosabril 😄. I can't help naming with the flowers though. Can't resist not clicking on the post as these are too pretty to just let pass by, kind of like giving me a fairytale vibe with how you snapped the photo. Looks like something I see on kids movies or story books. Somehow reminds me of animated movie Arriety as well with how these flowers could seem to be so tall. 😄

I have seen these flowers , in kashmiri we call them "posh".

Maybe they're related to poppys
