If there were awards for best pollinator support, native Common Ironweed would win the day. Clusters of brilliant purple flowers top the tall stems, creating a purple crown. Growing to 6 feet tall, Common Ironweed is a great pick for the back of a border, or the edges of a yard or meadow. Bees of all types love native Ironweed, as do butterflies. (Vernonia fasciculata)
