Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in situ[200].
We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will succeed outdoors in Britain, though we feel it should be possible to grow it either as a hardy or a half-hardy annual. The following notes are based on the general needs of the genus. Prefers a rather dry poor soil in full sun[1, 200].
Eastern N. America – Missouri to Arkansas and Texas, west to Nevada.
