Plant details

This beautiful perennial is grown for its large, fragrant, slightly drooping, satiny white flowers which appear in late spring. These are followed by white woolly seed heads which contrast attractively with the dark green foliage. Plants enjoy a partially shaded spot in humus-rich soil. Dig in plenty of leafmold or compost before planting and mulch around plants every spring.
