This is a handsome perennial with fern-like foliage and tall plumes of creamy-white fluffy flowers in summer. A great addition to the border or bog garden. Flowers are a magnet for pollinating insects    

Prefers a moist soil in sun or a drier soil in shade. This is a large plant and needs room to flourish.

Lynne's notes:

I first planted this perennial back in the late 1990's. Given the space to reach its full potential it is magnificent. In flower, it is covered with bees so makes a fantastic addition to a wildlife garden too.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.

  • Courier Service

    Typically sent out via Royal Mail's First Class Signed for delivery service

  • Click And Collect

    Collection is available from the nursery by appointment only or from one of the events we’ll be attending. During May, June and July our show schedule is very busy so appointments are not always possible and also at other times if we are away attending an event.
