An adaptable, easy to grow wildflower for your garden. Grows in a variety of soil types and moistures, but is intolerant of long dry periods and might begin to droop. The stunning blooms are long lasting throughout the summer. Highly attractive to the Monarch Butterfly and large seed heads attract small birds later in the season. Grows nicely alongside prairie grasses and Black Eyed Susan.
Historically used to treat snake bites, headaches, and sore throats. The flower is still used today for pharmaceutical purposes, with respiratory relief being one of the more common areas.
