  • 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.
