detailed seed-starting info below

Native to the US interior west and plains states, where it enjoys arid climates. Not destined to live long in our garden, I'm afraid - but perhaps I'll coax it along long enough to see it put up its fuzzy yellow flower spikes at least once.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
