Gardeners' Notes:

This plant survives heat, many months of summer/winter drought, winter wet, alkaline limestone soil that constitutes my area of Central Texas and loves the part shade to almost all sun. A friend further south of me grows it in clay and full sun. So I think it handles many situations well. It attracts bees and is a welcome fall bloomer. I have heard some people call it Craig lilly. I like it.
