** I’m a NA native, but technically not native to NY. I should be used in your garden and not in wild areas.
I have lovely fuzzy-blue flowers that bloom later in the season.
I also tend to wake up later in the spring, so be patient.
I can spread to make a nice ground cover in part-shade. I can tolerate full sun if I have plenty of moisture.
I am the host plant for the Clymene moth (Haploa clymene )
