One of the hardiest plants we offer, the Ironweed plant can survive nearly anywhere and provides you with unique, reddish-purple blooms at the end of summer and early fall. You'll get a great bang for your buck as this plant self-seeds every year and requires little to no maintenance.
Just like with Asters, you can lower the height of your plant for a bushier look by cutting its stem in the late Spring. If you're looking for an excellent rain garden or background border plant, Ironweed should be your first choice.
You will be purchasing a 3" plastic pot containing 1, well-rooted Ironweed plant with 1+ nodes of growth that was grown with love in Minnesota from seed. We will try and provide plants with multiple nodes, but it may vary depending on availability. Pictures on this listing are not perfectly representative to what you will be receiving, however, we will do our best to get you the healthiest plant possible.
