It's also equally at home in wild gardens or in a prairie setting with grasses and wildflowers. The natives were brought into cottage and country gardens early on for their vivid color. Spot into fence line beds, planting islands in the lawn and foundation beds for front and back yard. Even works well in some rock garden settings and bright sunny spots in gaps of woodlands.
