Late-season, tubular, lavender flowers open in leafy, six- to eight-inches long terminal spikes. Stems of this vigorous North American native wildflower become quite tall in rich, moist soil and may need support; however, height may be reduced when grown in poorer, drier situations. Nectar-rich blooms are very attractive to butterflies and make excellent cut flowers.
