Live-Forever has small, pink to purple, star shaped flowers that are in clusters, and they appear in July- September. It is common around roadsides, open areas, fields, and also in disturbed areas. It is native to Europe, and frequently escapes from cultivation here. It is not a crazy weed, but still, it may be a little weedy, as it does escape from cultivation. It's name refers to it's ability to regenerate from any fragments left behind after removal. So if you plant it, you may be stuck with it for life! A very pretty plant, though!

Happy Gardening!
