Medicinally, used internally for adrenal health, topically for burns and insect bites. Drought-tolerant.
Planting suggestions: Direct-sow in very early spring. Full sun to part sun. Thin to 12” apart. Harvest at flowering stage, before it seeds. Bruises easily, so handle as little as possible. Dry quickly in the shade and store in airtight container. Self-sows enthusiastically.
