Imagine planting a wildflower that could very well outlive you! This hardy perennial sends out roots up to 10 feet in length, gathering any available water. It was found growing over lead ore deposits, thus it became Lead Plant. Note the spires of blooms with beautiful contrast between its soft purple petals and blazing orange centers. A fascinating and long-lived specimen.
