Provides excellent contrast and texture to the perennial border. May be
used as summer filler to cover areas once occupied by early spring
wildflowers, bulbs or other plants which disappear into dormancy by
early summer.May not survive winter in wet, poorly drained soils. Likes
to be left undisturbed once established. Cut back after flowering to
promote rebloom. A very drought tolerant and hardy plant. Makes an
excellent cut flower, and is also useful in prarie gardens.
