Vernonia lettermanii ‘Iron Butterfly’
Fuzzy purple flowers cover this northeastern US native late summer to fall attracting butterflies. Awesome textural plant with its narrow feathery foliage and tidy mounding, yet somewhat fountain-like, growth habit. Beautiful in traditional as well as natural-styled gardens. Mix with grasses and native sunflowers for a knockout fall garden.
Full sun. Height 3’. Spread 3’. Drought tolerant. Zones 4-9.
