Description: Masses of delicate sky blue flowers hang weightlessly from arched branches in open clusters. Reliable, hardy and very drought tolerant - it's perfect for prairie gardens and it blooms all summer. Lots of blooms mean lots of seed but seedlings are easy to pull when small. This plant would be great in large gardens and naturalized plantings.

Found in Nature: Dry prairie hillsides, meadows and open woods.

Distribution: Prairies, Foothills

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
