A favorite of cottage gardeners, Marsh Blazing Star thrives in prairie to savanna situations with moist to mesic soils that have some good drainage. Tall wands of fluffy violet flowers begin blooming in June and continue through the summer. Beloved of pollinators, especially bees and monarchs, a few moths choose this plant as a larval host.
