Plant details

A delightful, compact perennial ideal for the rock garden or front of the border with fern-like leaves and bearing small white flowers in showy, many-flowered panicles in early summer. This plant grows well in partial shade and is drought tolerant. This plant is generally petite and slow-growing, so avoid planting vigorous perennials next to this plant, as they will overwhelm it.
