ironweed and?

When my mother first came to Kentucky after my parents married, one of my grandmother's friends was driving her somewhere and my mother asked "What are those beautiful purple flowers?" and the reply was "Oh, that's ol' ironweed." It is a pasture weed, but it seems to be more purple than ever this year.
The yellow flower is suddenly all over the roadside and I can't remember ever seeing it before, or find it in any of my books.
