Masses of graceful, vivid purple flower spikes add carefree color to the garden for weeks, enticing pollinators and human admirers alike. The dark buds on the main spikes open in midsummer, and the show continues on a succession of secondary flower spikes. The spiky shape and rich color of its flowers complement summer blooming perennials such as Shasta Daisies and Yarrows. Lovely with yellow varieties of Coreopsis as well. PP 27,428
