Lynne’s notes:

I love this little plant. If you have a border or container that has a prairie look then this will be an excellent addition. Being a species it will self seed so if you don’t require lots of seedlings remove flowering stems as they finish. Seeds sown late summer will produce flowering plants by the following summer in our experience.
