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.
