"Blue Jacket" as it is sometimes called, has blue to lavender flowers with three petals that bloom early in the day. This native perennial wildflower is adapted to most of the eastern half of the U.S. and is commonly found on open prairies, woodland borders, roadsides, and disturbed sites. It prefers full sun to moderate shade in well drained to moist soils. It can become aggressive in fertile soils. The foliage can appear unsightly in mid-summer, but cutting back the vegetation after blooming can stimulate re-growth and autumn flowering. Flowers bloom May through July.
