(aka: Trilisa paniculata) Carphephorus paniculata is a little-known native (coastal NC south to Florida) member of the aster family that forms a flat basal rosette from which the flowering stalk emerges, starting in late spring. In late September, the 2' tall stalk opens like an exploding liatris, revealing a firework-like panicle of purple flowers...simply superb. Our original seed came from NC's coastal Brunswick County where it grows along a seasonally moist sandy roadside.
