Gayfeather is an eastern U.S. native which also goes by the name of Marsh Blazingstar. It grows best in full sun with moist to mesic conditions, tolerating the combination of heat and humidity. Height varies with moisture levels, with moist conditions producing plants to 4 feet tall. It is an excellent cut flower that attracts seed-eaters and pollinators such as butterflies, honey bees and wild bees.
