HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall or early spring, pressing the seeds into the surface and covering them with a thin layer of soil.

Growing: Seedlings will need occasional watering until they become established. Remove weeds to allow the young plants to develop. Mature plants tolerate drought well, and can flourish in poor or rocky soil. This plant does not spread; because of their large taproots, plants should not be divided. These flowers attract bees and butterflies.

Harvesting: These blossoms do not perform well as cut flowers, and are best enjoyed outdoors.

Seed Saving: After flowering, the plant will produce seed heads containing small clusters of seed with white fluff. Since sparrows and goldfinches love to eat the seed, harvest it promptly to avoid loss. Cut the mature seed heads, or shake them into a container to remove the seed material. Clean the seed as well as possible, then store it in a cool, dry place.

Historical records show that Dr. Adam Kuhn, a student of Carl Linnaeus, first presented a live specimen of this plant to his teacher in the mid 18th century. The Latin genus name "kuhnia" honors Dr. Kuhn, who later became a renowned professor of botany and medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. The species name "eupatorioides" is derived from the plant's close resemblance to plants of the Eupatorium genus, or boneset.
