We are excited to be able to offer another one of the rare, but garden-worthy NC natives, Marshallia grandiflora. Marsh flowers grow naturally in acidic bogs and wetlands but adapt well to moist garden soils. From a basal rosette, these scabiosa look-alikes are topped in summer with 20" tall buttons of lilac-lavender...a favorite of butterflies!
