Masterwort is a plant that I do not see often enough in gardens. Maybe if it had some kind of fun name it would get more recognition? I have a couple different varieties, and I love them all. I especially like the variegated variety. I have luck growing them in sun through shade, so they have been very versatile for me. That's why I don't understand why it does get used more. It blooms in spring/early summer but even the faded flowers look nice (kinda like strawflowers) all summer long. The foliage is pretty nice too. Maybe it's one of those plants that grows well here in the midwest but not in other climates? Do you grow masterwort? If not, have you tried it and not had success? If you have, what are your thoughts on it?
