flower closeup--notice the long pedicel and the big flower.  What might pollinate such a large flower?  Is this flower zygomorphic or actinomorphic?

flower seen from the side--again, look at that long pedicel!

stem showing leaves and flower buds--what leaf shape is shown here?

habit--the leaves and stems are often difficult to pick out among the vegetation--thankfully, the flowers of Agalinis are very showy!
