Similar to thistle blooms, the fluffy, reddish-purple flower heads of this blazing star are an absolute favorite of Monarch Butterflies! It is not uncommon to see hundreds of them when looking across a field or meadow full of these blazing beauties! Blooming from top to bottom, this native wildflower is a unique point of interest, and adds needed vertical accents to flower beds. A favorite of florists for summer bouquets, it is equally stunning in a cottage garden, meadow, or prairie planting.
