    This wonderful foliage plant creates a fibre-optic effect, particularly when its slender tips are topped with small silvery white flower heads. A great architectural specimen for a bog garden or the margins of a pond, it can also be grown in a pot if you make sure it is kept really well watered.

  • Garden care: From mid-spring to early summer lift and divide congested colonies.
