This native, which I once saw blanketing acres of wooded bluffs above the Missouri River, is reputed to be a sturdy ground-cover. It certainly looks like it will like it here. Last year I planted a miserable pot (of three stems, one was broken, one was Ok, and one was dead). This year the clump had five stems and all bloomed, and four have set fruit. It would certainly be nice of it to spread. The flowers don’t last long, but it is the most unusual looking plant as it comes up in the spring. Quite fun.
