This native plant is fairly drought-tolerant and in very mild Texas winters might even retain leaves. It can be a fairly large plant and can reseed easily, so if you get one, choose the location carefully. It can tolerate poor soil and might be best in a large wildflower area. Can be invasive through reseeding. Do not plant this unless you're sure it's in the right place, because it can be a bit hard to move. It's a reliable bloomer over the warm season, flowers are pretty and insects and butterflies are drawn to it.
