Florida paintbrush is a showy, perennial herbaceous wildflower that blooms from mid-summer into fall.  It is an herb, a species of North American plants in the sunflower family.  It grows up to 3' tall. It produces a flat-topped inflorescence with many small purplish flower heads containing disc florets but no ray florets It occurs naturally in sandhills, pine flatwoods, scrubby flatwoods, mesic flatwoods and ruderal areas. It is very attractive to butterflies as well as other pollinators. It likes full sun to minimal shade.  This makes a nice addition to formal and naturalistic landscapes. It is easy to integrate and maintain. Spent flower heads should be deadheaded to prevent the spread of seed - or allow the spread of seed if you want more of this plant.
