Ideal if you want a whopper self-seeding wildflower to add scale and drama to an area of rough grass or lawn, this can stand 8 foot tall!
This self-seeds freely so remove the flower spikes before they set seed. A good reason for this is to encourage further flowers. If you remove this stalk before it forms seeds, the same rosette of leaves will put up several shorter flower stalks.
