Enjoyed the article. I liked the tidbit of info about the museums still using it in their soap.

I got a small piece from another friend in Oklahoma maybe 3 or 4 years back and it expanded to this size in no time flat.

Mine is pretty carefree. It just seems to smother anything else around it. There maybe a fight between it and the Showy Primrose; however, both seem to be holding their own space.

I wonder how the rock garden type would do here?

Deb: Love your flowers! Wow--- seems they spread pretty fast, & the color is pretty, too. I am assuming Claremore is Hot in Summer? I used to go to Tulsa & Morris 1 or 2 times a year when growing up, and it was hot like S.TX. ! Is Claremore N. or S., E. or W., of Tulsa? Happy Gardening! =)
