This is a wetland species which is native primarily to sandy swamps, riverbanks and moist thickets in Eastern North America from Nova Scotia and Maine south along the coastal plain to South Carolina and Alabama. Small disk flowers ranging in color from pale pink to dark purple bloom in dome-shaped clusters (4-7” across) from July to September. Lovely in larger format flower arrangements. DEER RESISTANT!
