Comments: Turkey and other birds eat the seed. A wonderful autumn flowering wildflower. Needs full sunlight and a well drained soil, although can tolerate a relatively wide range of growing conditions. Plants grow quite tall and lodge if not pruned during the summer months before plants set flowers.
