'Blond Ambition' has a unique, flag-like flower, unlike any other. A profusion of chartreuse blooms appear in mid-summer attracting butterflies. As the flowers mature they take on a blond color, quite nice in floral arrangements. Ground feeding birds enjoy the seed in autumn. Easy to grow, deer and drought tolerant, a low maintenance gem.
