Fluffy sprays of white flowers on upright green stems above clumps of fern-like grey-green leaves. This light and airy perennial is perfect towards the back of a herbaceous or mixed border. Best grown in moist humus-rich soil both the dainty foliage and flowers contrast well with the coarser-leaved plants usually grown at the back of the border.

  • Garden care: Stake using ring stakes or brush-wood before the flowers appear. Cut back the stems to the ground after flowering. Add a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the plant in spring. Lift and divide congested plants in spring.
