Ironweed "Summer Surrender" (Vernonia fasciculata)

Ironweed "Summer Surrender" (Vernonia fasciculata)

Overview: There isn't another Minnesota native quite like Prairie Ironweed, though Baldwin's Ironweed (Vernonia baldwinii), a more southern species, was collected once near Brainerd in 1890. It is now considered Historical in Minnesota, but is available in the nursery trade. It is distinguished by the hairy stem and leaves, where Prairie Ironweed is essentially hairless.
