Please select all options.

Yet another lovely wildflower with numerous medicinal applications - used extensively by Native Americans for traditional medicine and currently also by herbalists and naturopaths. Besides offering health benefits, this plant is a lovely and interesting addition to your outdoor space. A basal mound of feathery, fern-like leaves sprout early in the spring lending a bright-green airiness to your garden. Soon after, showy, tall flower stalks emerge and culminate in large umbels suggestive of burgundy fireworks. It’s an important resource for early season pollinators. Because it grows and flowers earlier in the season, it also goes dormant earlier. So it is best planted with other perennials or annuals that will remain green after this plant goes dormant. Considered drought tolerant.
