Need a source for Tall Ironweed

njtea(NJ Z6)January 9, 2007

Both Prairie Nursery and Prairie Moon seem to be sold out of Tall Ironweed plants already. Can anyone point me to another reliable source for this native?

I have what I think is called Western Ironweed. I think it's the same thing you are looking for. It's about 4-5' tall, has a large (6-8" across) head of tiny bright purple flowers. The rest of the plant is rather rangey looking with large, tough, hairy leaves. I can send you some seeds if you like. I harvested them this fall from my yard and fenceline. Cheryl

You could try Ion Exchange nursery.
