Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral Todd_Boland On Jan 13, 2005, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is a common plant of open grasslands of western North America but is also at home in the dappled shade of aspen woodlands. It can tolerate considerable drought. The foliage is quite sticky to the touch. The flower display is quite good but the plant is a bit coarse for the formal parts of a garden. It is ideal for a lightly shaded woodland garden or a wildflower garden.
