4-5' tall x 18-24" wide. A remarkable late 20th century discovery made by Henry Eilers, this unusual native plant was found growing in an Illinois prairie remnant along an abandoned rail road track. A towering perennial once mature, the plant blooms in late summer with numerous clusters of distinctly quilled, light-yellow petaled flowers. The foliage releases a mild anise fragrance when brushed. Great cut flower too! Compost Enriched Garden Loam Plant with Sedum 'Autumn Fire', Prairie Switch Grass.
