Ironweed ‘Iron Butterfly’
Out of stock
Fine textured foliage, with long needles from a central stem. Magenta purple flower clusters dance above the foliage in late summer. A super ‘texture’ plant for the border; the flowers are a favorite nectar source for butterflies. Very tolerant of poor dry soil conditions.
