Western Ironweed

Habit: Perennial
Bloom: June-Sept
Height: 3-4'
Planting Rates: 20 sq. ft.

Western Ironweed is a tall perennial, native to the prairies of Texas. Its average height is about 3 to 4 feet. It seems to prefer bottoms and slopes where it gets a little extra moisture, but is also quite drought tolerant. Like all prairie wildflowers, it is adapted to lower rainfall levels. This is a very worthwhile wildflower for the home garden. Plant it in a spot where you would like to have an interesting plant in the garden. Great for attracting butterflies.
