A fast and easy grower that tolerates a variety of poor soils. An important native perennial to the life cycle of the Monarch butterfly, which also attracts a number of other butterfly species. In the spring and early summer, look for caterpillars on your plant who’ve hitched a ride to their new home. Drought tolerant. Because it is such a vigorous grower, it is not recommended for small gardens. Enjoy pale pink blooms in summer.
