No photograph can convey the vivid purple color of ironweed; which is one of our most spectacular late-summer flowers. A field of ironweed and goldenrod (solidago) or yellow cone flowers, or Coreopsis - tripteris, is a sight that will bring awe to the viewer. Great for areas where you might need taller, back drop color to your gardens, or as a loose fence. Two species are common; Tall Ironweed is, as its name implies, taller than New York Ironweed (Vernonia noveboracensis), but otherwise very similar.

The flowers are magenta-purple in showy flat-topped clusters on top of this wonderful 6’ to 10’plant. The stem is so tough – like iron – that cattle won’t browse it in the fields so it stands as an ornament. This plant is also, therefor, deer resistant. Tallest in rich soil with plenty of moisture.

MIZZ TIZZY'S WEEDS & SEEDS are chosen for what they offer, in their ability to aid your garden's soils, improve their environments, their ability to fight off disease, to deter pests, and improve their growth rated, and increase production.

The seeds you will receive, are presented to you in booklet form with a handy clear seed packet, for you to reuse to collect seeds after the season is completed, to have for next year, or to share with friends.

Each seed package, contains total instructions on how to propagate the seeds, which are always a generous offering, the history, or folklore surrounding the plant, and any medicinal properties it is known for.

Each seed package can also become a page in the gardening book, which helps you follow how your efforts are working. The garden book is a tough 1/2 page 3-ring binder, with rubber spine and front edges, great for the out of doors. Inside are protective sleeves for your seed packages to slip into, and behind that are sheets of graft paper for planning, and a plastic envelope that will hold the name tags of other plants you have purchased, name tag markers, pens, etc. Also included is a booklet, that I have written and illustrated, which will give you some great references for how things work in your gardens, and how to make them self-sustainable - and "Survivable Gardens." We hope you enjoy.
