Agrimony grows easily for me in zone 8a. It is planted in a woodland-type bed in the shade of Oak trees, so I'm sure the soil is fairly acidic. It also seems to handle drought very well. The seedpods look and act like tiny cockleburs, but are not nearly as grizzly. Its a pretty plant also with nice yellow flower spikes in summer.
