We are always looking for beneficial plants, which will grow in shaded areas...it will also grow in full sun...

This native wildflower is a summer blooming,  perennial forb/herb with conspicuous cream to pink or purple flowers...It is adapted to medium to fine textured soils ( part of mine is sandy ) and prefers moist soils...Seed is round and brown...Where I hand-harvested seed, the plants were 1' to 3' tall...

"YOUR DIRECTION"

Here is the Hypothesis...

Only in Day to Day Living is there an East and a West...

But if You were to take Your Harley and head West on any given day, from Lacy, Oklahoma,and there was a sailboat to meet You at any given body of water to take You to the next dry land and on and on and on...You would in time be back to Lacy, Oklahoma...Thus proving there is no East...and the reverse is true, if You headed East and on and on and on...Thus proving there is no West...
