NATIVE INFO

Native Range

Open, rocky dry areas from Massachusetts south to Florida and west to the Ohio River.

Interesting Facts

Butterflies use their tarsi or "feet" as taste receptors. When they contact sweet liquids such as nectar butterflies extend their proboscis to eat the nectar sensed by the taste receptors.

GROWING TIPS

Remarkably self-sufficient, thriving in most well-drained soils in full sun. In late summer, a moderate to hard cutback will promote re-flowering into early fall, and also helps promote basal branching. Drought tolerant once established. Resistant to mildew. Ideal for sunny borders, associates well with other plant colors, ornamental grasses and looks good in containers. Attractive to bees and butterflies.
