Tall Ironweed (Vernonia gigantea)

11.95

Very adaptable and hardy, Tall Ironweed gets its name from the toughness of its stems.  Its native habitat is damp, rich soils, so a wet meadow would suit this showy, late-summer bloomer well.  The flowers are deep magenta and butterfly magnets. Grows 5-8 feet tall. Deer resistant.

Zones: 4-9

Light: sun, part shade
