Cultivated as decorative plant, but runs wild very easily. This is a quite nice plant when it blooms, even though it is often treated as an unwanted weed. Many kinds of insects visit the flowers.
Habitats include moist black soil prairies, openings and edges of floodplain forests, moist meadows along rivers, thickets, gravelly seeps, borders of ponds and lakes, edges of marshes, roadside ditches, junkyards, fence rows, pastures, and abandoned fields. This plant often thrives in disturbed areas.
