Climate Adaptive Qualities

Discovered in the United States in 1851 during explorations West. American Basketflowers have very low water needs with big feathery flowers 4 - 6 inches across. The plants can grow to 3 - 6 feet and look like a small basket with delicate pink strands. Add to borders or meadow plantings, as American Basketflowers start blooming in the Spring and continue throughout the summer.

Fragrant (smell like honey) and pollinator-attracting. They are also excellent cut flowers, fresh or dry.
