You may recognize this flower from arrangements, but this native perennial also makes a spectacular garden plant! It grows as a clump of very sturdy stems and appealing narrow foliage. Come summer, those majestic pink flower spikes start to appear. Not only do they bring a fantastic summery color to the garden, they also attract lots of pollinators.
