About Summer's Surrender
Long-blooming, fluffy 1" bunches of tiny deep purple florets cover a mound of mildew-resistant foliage in late summer and fall, making the pollinators happy.
A cross between two ironweed species at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Give this shrub-like plant plenty of room. Adapts to different soils and even some flooding, but appreciates good drainage. Deer-resistant.
