Ironweed is a true North American wildflower and is rare in some areas. Ironweed is so named because of its tough stems. It can stand nearly four feet high.

The beautiful purple flowers attract bees and butterflies. Ironweed is currently blooming at Coffee Creek, Willow Slough, and in limited areas by the Kankakee River.
