Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Design Plant: Discover Queen of the Prairie's Sweet Aroma
Distinguishing traits. Queen of the Prairie has puffy, cotton candy blooms that are unlike any other flowering perennial. What really makes this plant stand out is the scent — a very sweet rose scent that's better than a rose. If you have a clump of this in a corner or near a path, walking by it will fill your senses with a wonderful fragrance.
