Leadplants or Prairie Shoestrings are perennials with ornamental feathered leaves on woody branches and terminal, dense, long spikes of unusually dark coloured flowers. Most species are native of open grasslands, such as the tall-grass regions and prairies in North America. They prefer a very well drained, slightly sandy or rocky soil and are best planted in full sun.
Sow flat in any well drained, preferably sandy soil. Keep pots in a sheltered spot outside during winter. Transplant young root stock after leaves have withered in late summer to early autumn.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
