  • I'm a native of New York State. I'm not found in the wild in Tomkpins county, but I am found in the neigborhing counties of Tioga, Chemung, and Schuyler

    I'm known for my flower heads that bend towards the ground

    I will gradually spread by bulb offshoots and seed.

    When planted in drifts I create a stunning display.

    I attract butterflies.

    I am edible and can be used as a chive substitute.
