Ideas and knowledge in full bloom.
Add dazzling color to perennial or butterfly gardens with these vibrant flowers. Ideal at garden's edge and beautiful planted with coreopsis, yarrow or perennial salvia. Trim attractive seed heads periodically to make room for new flowers, but leave a few to go to seed, to ensure this sometimes short-lived plant will become a long-term presence in the garden. Prefers a sunny location with rich, well-drained soil.
