Description

White Lightning New York ironweed is a form of a perennial plant that is native to the north-eastern parts of the US where it grows in locations that are consistently moist and bright. White Lightning bears white one-inch flowers in late summer to mid-fall and has long lance-shaped leaves. In trials at the Chicago Botanic Garden this ironweed was relatively rust-free although it did suffer from mildew.
