torontoista -- Yeah, I don't know, you'll have to research it. I am certainly a 100% native plant guy, for benefits to you, the plants, and wildlife. If I had my choice, we'd do away with hardiness zones and switch to more accurate (and I think helpful) ecoregion maps. :)

Love this plant. Self seeding around my garden in Selkirk, NY. I have it in sandy soil in part shade to shade.
