Washington State University: As an east coast prairie native, Gay Feather is derived from corms which grow 2'-4' tall rigid flowering stalks bearing fuzzy purple flowers. The first flowers to open are those at the top of the shoots. The base of the plant is grass-like with narrow alternate leaves. Flowers first appear in July and last for 3-4 weeks into August. Both butterflies and bees are readily attracted the flowers.
