Branched clusters of tiny lilac pink flowers gather in a large, rounded head at the top of a 5-9’ stem from July to September. This plant attracts a plethora of pollinators when in bloom. Once it’s established, it tolerates regular garden conditions well. E. maculatum is a more common species in garden centers, along with E. purpureum which also features a shorter height (3-6’ tall). Cutting this plant back in early summer will help to control the height, or let it go wild!
