This plant was not patented because it is a wildflower that my brother and I discovered when we were in our teens (I am 60 now). I collected the seed from the wild plant and propogated it for several years noticing that it came true from seed. I gave the seed to many of my neighbors, including Richard Simon (of Simon Nursery) who introduced it to the world. When I was given the opportunity to name the plant I called it "Corbett" after the town in Maryland where I discovered it. The plant grows well in the mid atlantic region and seeds itself.
