Conoclinium coelestinum

Blue mistflower

Conoclinium coelestinum is a flowering plant native across the southeast, predominantly found growing in moist to wet soils. It prefers full sun to part shade. This plant can grow up to three feet tall during the growing season, and dies back almost completely in the winter. It produces showy clusters of bluish purple flowers in the late summer that attract many pollinators. Songbirds eat the seeds in the fall and winter. Conoclinium coelestinum works well in restoration projects, or as a specimen plant in a yard or rain garden.
