Self-seeding annual native to North America, currently distributed worldwide. Flowers light blue or white on a purple stem. Direct seed in warm, sunny location, or start in greenhouse in flats or pots. Traditional usage external only (American Indian, TWM): motion sickness, rheumatic and glandular swellings. All parts of the plant are toxic–leaf, root, flower and seed. This plant must never be ingested! Plant prefers full sun and dryish soils. Sow in warm soil, keep moist, and if germination does not occur within a week or two, allow the flat to dry out, which often spurs germination. The seeds are very wild, and can remain in the seed bank for many years and germinate when conditions are right (sunlight, dry and warm). Space plants 3 feet apart.
