  • I’m native to NY and Tompkins County.


    I like moist, humusy and moist soils.


    I don’t like windy or dry conditions.


    I have beautiful and fragrant flower spires.


    I’m also called bugbane because of my  insect repellent properties.


    I’m tall, so I usually stand well above the surrounding foliage.


    I am slow to establish, and spread by rhizomes,  so you need to be patient with me.
