This is a long lived perennial that will increase it's stand over many years. Give them plenty of room.
Grows 2-4' tall making at least a 2' clump. Plants can be propagated through root divisions after they are mature. Seed benefits from stratification, but it is notnecessary. It is always good to plant in fall or early winter. To speed germination up, you can stratify at 40 degrees for a week and then plant. Plant seed 1/4" deep. Don't be surprised if it takes these plants two years to bloom. They like full sun but can grow in partial sun. Hardy to Zone 3.
This plant is medicinal, beautiful and beloved by pollinators.
