  • ** I’m a NA native, but technically not native to NY. I should be used in your garden and not in wild areas.

    I'm bushy enough to use as a shrub border

    I have beautiful Lupine-like blooms. 

    My showy brown seedpods when dry make a sound when shaken and were once used by children as rattles.

    Dried seed pods on the stems make nice additions to flower arrangements.
