A showy clump-forming plant notable for its gorgeous bright pink flowers (June-August) which grow in a soft pyramid (gumdrop?) shaped cluster around the top of the erect stems of this plant. The leaves are opposite, creating an interesting star-like appearance to the stem as they march along its length, and this plant is also tolerant of clay. Although capable of spreading by seed, it does not do so aggressively and seedlings can easily be moved to new locations. Its flowers are quite popular with butterflies and native bees, and may also attract hummingbirds!
Native Range: stretches from NJ westward to KS, the southern edge of its range including AR, TN, AL, GA and FL
