** 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.
