Queen of the Prairie adds a bright pop of color to the wetland garden that can be seen majestically towering over the tops of other plants. The clusters of pink flowers sit above fragrant, bright green, deeply cut leaves, creating a beautiful sight in the summer when planted in masses.
Queen of the Prairie prefers moist, hummusy soil and full sun to part-shade, though it will tolerate average to wet, well drained soil. If planted in full sun, the soil should not be allowed to dry out. Queen of the Prairie will self-seed or can be divided in the spring. The plant grows 5 to 8 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide. Queen of the Prairie is deer resistant.
