This is a very striking flower--the emerging ombre colored buds, highlighter yellow anthers, and pale purple (sometimes white or more blue) flowers all make for a stop and stare plant. Part sun and moist to average moisture, with rich soil is the ideal habitat, but it will adapt to more or less sun. Plants will go dormant by late summer, and re-emerge in late winter/early spring. A variety of bees and flies will visit the nectar rich flowers before they turn into small capsules filled with shiny black seeds.It will reproduce slowly over time by re-seeding.
