This is a plant of the prairies, which occur mostly in western Indiana.  However, there have been lots of prairie restorations in other parts of the state and this plant can often be found where you might not expect it.  There used to be bits of prairie across northeast Indiana and into Ohio where the conditions were just right, so it’s not totally out of character to have prairie restorations in these areas.
