US wildflower. We first grew it in Pennsylvania, where it obviously flowered for us, judging by the seed stalks with lots of seed – but somehow I missed its floral performance in our nursery area, and it didn't return the following year. My next try was in Texas, where I got just one seed to germinate, far enough into the season where setting it out would mean near certain death, so it lived in its seed pot for a few months, where it bloomed pretty quickly (but once again I missed taking a picture of the main show). I intend to plant it in the open garden once the weather gets a little cooler...

We're just trying this plant for the first time this year; it
hasn't found a permanent place in our gardens yet.
