Makes a good cut flower. Flowers also attractive to bees. Grows in most moist soil types, thrives in rich fertile soil. The plant itself is a high nitrogen plant, and can be used as a green manure plant. Cut back after first flowering to encourage a second flowering. The fresh juice is used as a vegetarian rennet in cheese making. Once used as a wide spread fodder for grazing animals to increase their milk supply. Also previously used to feed to hens to fatten them and increase egg production.
