Stout upright stem with dark green, lanceolate leaves topped with loose clusters of small flowers. The flowers are purple to whitish and about 1/4″ across with protruding stamens that give them a “fuzzy” look. The flowers are followed by small seeds with a hairy pappus on the end. This plant is very attractive to butterflies and bees. Can get very tall and form dense stands as the rootstock matures.
