The abundant fragrant white and pink flowers of this native perennial are a great nectar source for butterflies and bees in Summer and Fall. The 18″-36″ flower stalks die back after setting seed but the short grass-like foliage is present year-round. The leaves turn purplish and lie flat on the ground in the winter. In Spring, they stand up and turn green. Though native to a small area of NC, SC and GA, they are adapted to a much wider area. We propagated our stock plants from a native population in Tattnall Co, GA. that Angel Geronimo and I found in 2017. They thrive in sunny to partly sunny, acidic moist areas.
