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

  • Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade
  • Soil: fertile, moist soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This pretty perennial can be used to add height without density in the herbaceous border or edge of woodland. It has very attractive aquilegia-like foliage, but is at its best in summer, when the open sprays of pure white flowers burst upon the scene. A coolly elegant plant that mixes well with ferns.

  • Garden care: May need supporting with brushwood or garden canes. Divide congested plants as new growth begins in spring, although divisions may be slow to re-establish. Cut back flower stems to the ground in spring before the new growth starts to emerge.
