Native to Illinois, this rare and showy plant is worthy of the effort. Under ideal conditions, germination rates are around 40%.

GERMINATION: To assist with germination, pour 180F water over the seed and let it soak overnight. The next day, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator for 60 days before planting. Sow the seed in individual peat pots, lightly covering it with a thin layer of soil; keep the soil consistently moist and at a temperature of 70-75 degrees F until germination, which should occur within 14-20 days. Thin the seedlings to the strongest two per pot, and transplant them outdoors when the weather has warmed and there is no chance of frost.
