Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: Mistflower reaches up to two feet in height with downy, purplish, branching stems in moist or low savanna settings. Its opposing, large-toothed leaves are oval to triangular.
Resembling a lovely blue-purple fog when found in dense stands, the disk flowers form in clusters of 35-70 at the tops of stems in late summer and autumn, attracting late-season butterflies. It will spread so should be planted with caution in small landscape situations. Insects that feed on Eupatorium species (Bonesets) may also use Mistflower as a host plant.
*This plant can be late to emerge in the spring, especially in northern climates.
