Great for damp areas, this tall perennial provides a burst of late-season colour. DeLong describes it as “beloved by all kinds of pollinators,” so it’s good for the environment as well. Although native to North America, breeders have been working to develop lower-growing cultivars, such as ‘Purple Bush’ and ‘Phantom’.
