  • I'm a native to New York State, but I'm not found wild in Tompkins County.  I am found wild in the surrounding counties of Chemung, Schuyler, Seneca and Cayuga.


    I attract butterflies and bees including the Hermit Sphinx moth.


    Hummingbirds will also visit my flowers.


    I like to form clumps.


    My leaves can be used in teas.


    My seed heads are attractive in flower arrangements.
