This would a great addition to a rain garden! Central stem is usually purple to red with whorls of leaves along its length. The tops of these stems produce a panicle of pink flowerheads. They will tolerate some periodic standing water. Flowers are visited by a large variety of pollinators, including many native bee species, butterflies and moths.
