Jim! I think that's it!  Thank you so much.  I never would have figured 
that out.  It's stubborn at setting seeds.... which encourages me to 
believe it's not a true species... but perhaps an unbalanced hybrid.

Anyway, it's nice to finally put a name with the face.  Though I've 
called it Wild Lakota for so long, it'll be hard to stop.
