Height is 1'-4'.
This plant loves heat and drought.
It is deer and rabbit proof. It is not browsed by cattle.
Caution: latex in the sap is toxic and causes skin irritation. Avoid handling the plants.
Grows best in full sun but will tolerate partial shade.
Blankets the prairies with white in the very hottest, dryest part of the late summer. Begins flowering in Texas in August and lasts until frost.
