Thank you for the offer but looks like that plant is not hardy in my zone... After this winter, I am hesitant to try anything pushing the zones since we hit colder than we should have been in zone 5b...

Thanks again for the offer...

buturfliis_mom, I had to go look that one up. What a crazy, amazing looking plant! I was even more amazed at it's native distribution, which is quite scatters across the US. Interesting.

Well, I don't have seeds of it, but I do have seeds of other species loved by bees. Let me know if you are interested.

Thank you Katie for your offer but I am looking for this plant for a friend.
I had never heard of it either but I am curious about it. I look forward to seeing it in a garden.

By the way, It is amazing how much energy you put into the milkweed adoption thread. Thank you so much for doing that.

I have seeds of this plant I think. I'd have to double check my seed inventory first.

I'll get back to you in a bit!

I'm sorry... I don't have anymore :( I must have traded them all away. I planted some last year and they grew but never bloomed so I couldn't collect more seeds.
