Ironweed has dark purple flowers that occur in terminal, compact inflorescence.  It blooms late summer to early fall, offering great compliment to the yellows of goldenrods.  Ironweed is a tall, upright plant that rarely requires staking, and as such is great used along fence lines and in the back of gardens.  Can tolerate flooding from time to time.
