Great for erosion control because it has a deep, branching, woody root system. Flowers are dense on spikes and purple in color. Blooms mid-summer for about 3 weeks. It is a good food resource for pollinating insects, including solitary bees. Deer, elk, and livestock will graze on it. Frequently found in open areas and prairies. Slow growing.
