(I garden in the Mid-Atlantic). This plant grows wild in my area and I have never thought to put it in my garden. Mostly because it grows in a lot of places. It seems pretty hardy so I assume it would be invasive in my garden. But it would be nice in a wildflower garden or where allowed to spread, or in a perennial garden if it could be contained and deadheaded. It is a very pretty wild plant though, and blooms just as other plants are fading and long into fall.
