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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June and July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Glowing columns of pure white flowers rise up from leafy clumps in early summer adding structure and form (as well as colour) to the border. It's an excellent variety for cutting, so you may wish to plant a few extras, which will allow for vases to be filled - without leaving any gaps in the planting scheme.

  • Garden care: Stake with bamboo canes in mid-spring. During the growing season apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every 2-3 weeks and wearing gloves cut back the faded flower-stems to a flowering side-shoot. At the end of autumn cut back and compost the faded flower stems.
  • Harmful if eaten
