Big, bold attraction for the fall border.  Fine-textured foliage.  Plant has several small blossoms in each inflorescence and multiple flower clusters, resulting in many flowers providing a fall cornucopia of food for the birds. Can be grown in full sun but will likely need supplemental water in a hot, dry August. Attracts birds, bees and butterflies.
