Details

A must for butterfly gardens! The small, purplish-blue flowers cluster together to form puffy, 2”, cushion-like flower heads. The plant starts to flower in late summer through fall, and is a nice filler in fall flower arrangements. It is a carefree plant that is drought tolerant when established. It is also a great nectar source for monarch and queen butterflies and provides migration energy for masses of monarchs.
