Vernonia lettermannii, 'Iron Butterfly'

Hot spot for butterflies.
Arkansas native plant this ironweed specimen comes with lovely, fine foliage like Amsonia hubrichtii, but compact, well-branched and vigorous plant. Plants bloom in late summer with vivid purple flowers that attract plenty of butterflies. Coming from the rocky flood plains of Arkansas, Vernonia lettermannii is very tolerant of hot dry locations, yet can withstand brief periods of rain storm down pours.
