Prairie Moon says this is aggressive. So maybe not the best choice for small gardens or rich soils? Perhaps better in informal settings with tough growing conditions. Also available from Prairie Nursery in Wisconsin.

If you have rich soil it will spread faster than it would in poor soil but is very easy to divide and chop back to desired margins. An inappropriate sized 'small' garden for this native would be a 5' x 8' space if growing with many other perennial species, anything bigger and I would still give it a try.

Is this plant resistant to rabbits?
