I do so like this plant. It grows wild on my hilltop in rocky soil. It does well in part shade and sunlight. I just discovered there is a silver variety from Big Bend. I want and I want bad. LOL. Did I say, it loves alkaline soil and rocks? I have also seen it growing in rocky sandy stream beds and on an edge of a golf course in clay, so it is a flexible critter
