Description A highly sought after plant for pollinator gardens, especially for its value in attracting butterflies. Gregg's mist flower benefits from extra moisture and will spread by the root system, so planting in basins is appropriate where the spreading habit of the plant will help tie the basin together. In Arizona this species is only found in Cochise County but is appropriate for gardens in much of the southern portion of the state. In hotter climates partial shade is recommended.
