This woody perennial is just starting to bloom at this time of year. Grows to 5-6 feet tall.

Any guesses on what this might be?

Southwest USA, zone 8.

Your photo doesn't come up. When it loads, there is only a photo icon placeholder and when I right-click and select "show image" it goes to a Google page stating that I don't have permission to view it.

Hi Ed,

That photo works perfectly. What you have there is an aster, probably the heath aster (Symphyotrichum ericoides) which does grow in your area and even down into Mexico. This is their bloom time. Hope that helps.
