Full sun, half-shade, adaptable to many soil types (including clay), that stay medium-moist to dry. Preffers some drainage, tolerates shallow, rocky or sandy soils.

Flowers in June/July to August, attracts butterflies, but primarily offers nectar and pollen to native bees, honeybees and bumblebees. Host to caterpillars of Hairstreak Butterfly.

Deer, rabbit resistant, black walnut tolerant plant. Hardy in zones 4 to 8.

Best in rock gardens, border fronts, cottage gardens, prairie plantings or naturalized areas. It may selfseed too much, so it's better for medium to bigger beds or areas.
