See more: Perennials
Gregg's mistflower is a small to medium-sized perennial that usually grows to about 2 feet tall. It goes dormant over the winter. It flowers from late June through frost - the leaves are fine textured and lacy, and the blooms are fuzzy lavender to light-blue in color.
Gregg's mistflower is a butterfly magnet, often attracting Queen butterflies in large numbers. The peak display is from mid-September through October. It does best when planted in part sun. Gregg's mistflower can be a good ground cover as it spreads easily by roots.
