** I’m a NA native, but technically not native to NY. I am however found throughout the state and am just too awesome to ignore. I'm nice in a home garden, but please don't plant me in wild spaces.
I’m a pollinator favorite.
I attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds.
I make a nice cut flower.
I grow in open woods and meadows.
