Outstanding purple flowers are fabulous against the lance shaped green leaves. They have an excellent extended bloom time. Flowers are fluffy and similar to cornflowers. The leaves are in rosettes along the stem and will remain evergreen throughout the winter in warmer climates. They are deer and rabbit resistant, and stand up well to heat and drought, once established. Adds a burst of color to the landscape. Named for Jonathan Stokes, an English physician and botanist. Native to southeast U.S.
