This heat and drought tolerant native wildflower looks right at home in rock gardens and prairie style plantings paired with Asclepias tuberosa, Echinacea and Sporobolus. It is easy to grow in most soil types where it is efficient at fixing Nitrogen. Distinctive 1-2Ó long, dunce cap-shaped, bright purple flowers attract many types of pollinators. After it is finished blooming, the plant retains its visual interest due to its very finely textured foliage.
