Ironweed (Vernonia missurica) starter plant (dormant)

$7.50

Ironweed (Vernonia missurica) starter plant Beautiful late summer blooming plant for medium to moist spots. One of my favorites for attracting butterflies, particularly swallowtails. Goes well with Joe Pye weed and swamp milkweed. Gets 3-5 feet. An easy care plant. Even when they go to seed, the tufts are quite beautiful.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. They will continue to grow roots for next season, despite having no foliage. If ordered in the fall they may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage but in late fall or winter will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed. If kept on, I suggest ripping the sides of the pot for easier root penetration.
