      Not being a gardener, I couldn’t say with certainty, but their native range is as far north as New Hampshire and Vermont and westward to Illinois, so it’s quite possible it could grow in Minnesota. They are a plant of dry forests and woodlands, so proper habitat might be an issue for a garden. I’m always reluctant to recommend planting something outside its native area, but this plant doesn’t seem to be particularly weedy.
