'Lavender Mist' is tall delicate-looking perennial with blue-green columbine-like foliage. Despite its spindly look, when planted in groups, the plants interlock and support each other, usually making staking unnecessary. The central stalk is quite sturdy. Numerous nodding purple flowers with yellow stamens appear in July. Deer will definitely nibble on these, so take necessary precautions if deer are around. This is a back-of-the border plant that benefits from having plants in front of it to hide its lower stalks.
