Quite a bit of nostalgia sowing seeds of this lovely native perennial in a flat today....finding a wild one in the west Tampa trailer park where I lived in 1987 was one of a few inspirations to move to Denver that fall. It THRIVES in Denver, makes big clumps, but that wild one in 1987 shows it CAN grow here. The name comes from the fact that each floret stays where you push it with a finger, as if it was attached by copper wire. My best hope is along the north side of my home. Excellent cut flower!
