As long as it's dead-headed regularly it will produce a succession of graceful pure white saucer-shaped flowers up to 10cm (4in) in diameter from June to October and masses of feathery mid-green leaves.

Garden Care: Stake with brushwood or ring stakes well before the flowers appear and dead-head regularly to prolong flowering.
