Plant details

An outstanding plant for the border with tall spikes of large white, bell-shaped flowers in summer. It is also vigorous enough to plant in a wild or woodland garden and will spread by self-sown seedlings. To prevent too many seedlings in a border, it's wise to cut off the old flower spikes before they set seed.
