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


    We bloom on stems from bottom to top and can be stunning when in bloom.


    Our name comes from the often sudden appearance of our seedlings after a fire.


    Pollinators are attracted to me. 


    I'm a mat-forming perennial that makes a nice ground cover. I can be aggressive, so find an area where I can colonize and you can enjoy my blooms.
