  • I'm a native to NY state and to Tompkins County, NY.


    I attract bumblebees which need to squeeze through the small opening on my blooms. Humans seem to enjoy watching these bumblebees squeezing in to get my nectar and pollen.


    I'm deer resistant, but they will sometimes nibble off my buds. 


    I’m a late bloomer, so I add nice fall interest.


    I like to form clumps.
