Ironweed: New York (Vernonia noveboracensis)
Great for bordering wildflower gardens. Can grow very tall! (5-7 ft). Prefers medium wet soil and full/partial sunlight. Pairs well with other late-summer bloomers like goldenrod and mountain mint. New York Ironweed has deep purple flowers that produce rusty brown seed heads that last into winter. Blooms from August-frost. Like all native flowers, it provides food for many pollinators and songbirds eat the seeds in the winter.
*** Most of the new native perennials will say "We have run out of stock for this item or it is out of season" for now, so we don't overpromise. If you would like to purchase one of our native varieties that says this, we urge you to click the "Notify Me when Available" button to get a notification emailed to you when we know we have some available for purchase.
This is because native plants have different growth habits than the other plants we start under grow lights. In fact, most of them need a long cold period in the soil before germinating in the spring or summer, or even a year after being sown. Therefore, it is a bit more challenging to predict when and how many will be ready for pick up in the spring.
