Geum triflorum (Prairie Smoke) is one of the most stunning and longest lasting prairie perennials, with unmistakable feathery silver and pink seedheads in mid-spring. It is a soft, hairy plant growing typically to 16" tall with fern-like leaves. It prefers full sun and average to dry soil. It is drought tolerant once established, grows in sand, gravel and rock gardens. It spreads by rhizomes and can be naturalized to form an interesting ground cover.
Kurt Cobain is one of my favorite musicians. I found nirvana when i was thirteen years old and kurt's music and lyrics helped me survive my horrible teenage years. (but didn't it help us all during those scary years?) The way kurt didn't give a damn and pulled off the homeless look WITH an attitude has been an example to me ever since. I often tried to leave the house dressed up like kurt in my teenage years (but my mom wouldn't let me go out like that!) did it anyway! =D
