I'm native to NA but not NY state. I should be planted in gardens, but not in wild spaces.
I'm a clump forming perennial.
I bloom from late summer to early fall.
I'm a lovely color addition to the yellow early fall bloomers.
My aromatic smell when brushed against repels deer and rabbits.
I like to grow in dry sites and may flop when planted in too rich soils.
I'm the host plant for the Hermit Sphinx moth.
