Description

Vernonia baldwinii, commonly known as western ironweed or Baldwin's ironweed, is a perennial that is native to the central United States. It is tall, branched, and is up to 1.2m, 4' in height, sometimes taller. The flowers are showy and measure 30 cm (1 ft) or more across. The common name "western ironweed" is derived from the range of the plant, the western United States, and derived from the toughness of the stem and roots of the plant. It grows in dry soil in prairies, pastures, open grounds, and woods, ranging from Iowa to Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas. The flowers bloom in the summer, from May to September, attracting bees, butterflies, and other insects. American goldfinches and other birds eat the seeds.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Height: 1.2m, 4'

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 25

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. These seeds require a period of cold. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix. Leave them at room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
