Thanks! When the Monarchs are migrating through Texas in the fall they also love this flower along with a lot of other butterflies. Worth it's space in the garden for sure.

Yes it is, and should grow in your area. If I have seeds, I can send you some; just don't remember right now. Send me a dmail if you want them, and I will check and let you know.

Send me your addresses and I will send seeds as soon as I have some. They are beginning to bloom now. Their peak here is October.

Sheila I can't remember if I ever sent you a D-mail about the seeds but will do that now and make a note to follow up in the fall with you.
