This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    In late spring and early summer white flowerheads, which sometimes have a pink-flushed disc, open from attractive buds that are covered with bristle-edged scales. A sun-loving perennial that is tolerant of poor soils.

  • Garden care: Stake with brushwood or bamboo canes before the flowers appear. Cut back to the ground after flowering and you may get a second flush of flowers. Lift and divide large clumps every three years in spring.
