Vernonia noveboracensis - New York Ironweed

Vernonia noveboracensis

Ironweed - New York

New York Ironweed comes into its glory in late summer and early fall, with a multitude of cloudy purple flowers at the tops of the tall green stems. It prefers moist meadows and sunny streamsides, and works very well planted with Eupatoriums. Butterflies and insects are all over the flowers when in bloom.
