Plant details

The tall, erect spikes of 'Snow Maiden' are packed with small, pure white flowers, which have yellow stamens, and will continue to appear over a long summer. It makes a striking show for the middle to back of a multi-coloured border or white bed, and is easily grown from seed, giving plenty of plants to thread throughout the garden. Free-draining ground is vital, also making it a good contender for Mediterranean-type areas with plenty of sun and light soil.
