A graceful hazy plant with airy spikes of white star-shaped flowers with long anthers like daddy long-legs held on slender stems from May to September. This exceptionally long-flowering perennial looks equally at home in an informal cottage-style garden or among soft grasses in a new perennial border. It is exceptionally drought-tolerant and will soak up the sun. Give it space as its wispy stems will lean over plants and pathways.

  • Garden care: Resist the temptation to cut back after the plant has flowered as it takes on beautiful autumn tints particularly in cold weather. Cut back and divide large colonies in spring.
