For late season color, it’s tough to be New York ironweed (Vernonia noveboracensis). This native plant hails from the Eastern part of the country; choose Western ironweed for gardens in the Great Plains and West. Purple flowers start opening in late summer and linger into fall, providing a late season nectar source for butterflies and other pollinating insects. Watch for migrating hummingbirds to visit this bloomer. Goldfinches and sparrows feast on the seed. Use ironweed in the back of the border or wildlife garden. Grows 4 to 7 feet tall by 2 to 4 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 5-8.
Camille Simmons has a love of pretty things: a sweet teacup, a beautifully scented candle, a colorful plate. It’s through beautiful objects that Camille believes one can truly enjoy each moment in life. Little moments of pretty, like the perfect pen, or a special piece of stationery, can brighten the day’s most mundane moments, according to Simmons. Her philosophy, dedicated to entertaining and style in pretty fashion, is reflected in the shop she founded with her husband Joe. Located in the historic Bluff Park neighborhood of Long Beach, California, Planning Pretty is a celebration of personal style where beauty reigns. And that pretty-is-as-pretty-does philosophy extends to Camille and Joe’s home. Just blocks away from their shop, the couple’s historic Southern California home is a mix of traditional and modern style where every piece is a little bit of beauty to be explored.
