I think Donna (Hi there from Shepherdstown) is on the right track.  See: http://www.friendsofthewildflowergarden.org/pages/plants/roughblazingstar.html

I have seen this plant in semi-protected tall/mixed grass prairie in Oklahoma.

Cheers,

John L.

Tim, On quick glance this looks like a young (flower buds) Liatris.  Hopefully another will confirm/correct!

Howdy All,
Original description is here with image links using Imgur.
"Ditch next to a high quality remnant prairie. Xeric. It's a fun mix for
the area. However, it is a cemetery. The other bordering cemetery is
managed in the normal way, so this could be anything. This would be in a
tallgrass ecosystem. Thanks! Any ideas would be appreciated."
