Vernonia angustifolia 'Plum Peachy' (Narrow-leaf Ironweed)

SunZone: 5-8 48" tall Origin: USA

(aka: V. a. A2GA-003B) In 1998, I found this wonderful selection of the southeast native (NC to Mississippi), Vernonia angustifolia, growing on a grit outcrop in Turner Co., Georgia. Despite being discovered and named by the famed plant explorer Andre Micheaux more than 200 years ago, it is surprisingly absent in horticulture. The robust 4' tall stalks of narrow, green amsonia-like leaves are topped, starting in late August, with 8" wide, branched, airy flower heads of dark purple flowers. This clone holds its large flower heads upright better than any of the others we have trialed. Pot size: 24 fl. oz (709.77 ml)
