It looks like Conoclinium coelestinum and it is native to Tennesee and most of the East of the country from Texas and Nebraska to the Atlantic. GREAT butterfly attracter. It is a bit of a thug in the garden so give it ROOM to expand if you are planting it otherwise you will grow to not like it. It is not a good plant for a small garden.

Here is a link that might be useful: Blue mistflower

It doesn't over winter this far north, but usually will reseed to some extent. A very very nice plant to have in a wildflower garden.
I started mine this year and didn't get them into the garden until July. They grow very rapidly once they get a start and are fully mature now and blooming-until end of October usually.
