Vernonia noveboracensis, Ironweed, prefers rich, moist soils but it tolerates a wide range of soils making it great plant to use in naturalized areas or meadows looking for a subtle dab of purple bloom from its numerous tiny, fluffy, purple flowers late summer into fall. Vernonia noveboracensis grows 4-6' tall in full sun. This tall yet fairly coarse upright perennial is perfect for moist thickets, low areas, along stream banks, cottage gardens, wildflower gardens, meadows or naturalized areas.
