In late summer and into fall, Common Ironweed offers a large cluster of unusually brilliant purple flowers on top of 6' tall, unbranched stems. Because of its height, it works well as a plant in the back of the garden. The seeds disperse with the wind. Ironweed is a host plant for the American Painted Lady butterfly and is listed by the Xerces Society as having special value to native bees.
