A very popular nectar provider for native bees in the mid to late summer, this is an adaptable species that is a very worthwhile addition to pollinator gardens. Their small flower appear in late June and continue for several weeks and are followed by a sturdy seed head in te same form as the blooms that holds up well into the fall or winter in my experience.

They thrive in a range of growing conditions, including dry soils and shade.
