Florida Paintbrush, Carphephorus corymbosus, has a basal rosette of narrow strap leaves and long flower stalks that reach up to 3 or 4 feet when in flower in late summer through the fall. It is a perennial with pretty lavender-purple flat heads of small flowers that is collectively very showy. It is adapted to drained, moist to dry soils when established, but requires an extended period of watering to establish this species as a drought tolerant wildflower. It is a beautiful addition in wildflower and butterfly gardens.
