Plant for chalk soil
Plant for sun
A statuesque perennial for the back of the border but a stunner when well grown. Large, pure white flowers with papery petals surround golden yellow centres and are held above blue-green, fern-like foliage. Flowers are produced on mature plants from mid-summer until autumn and are a magnet for pollinating insects.
Prefers a fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. May take a while to establish. Shelter from strong winds and once planted leave alone as it resents disturbance. When established this is a vigorous plant which requires room to grow well.
Height: 24 - 96 inches / 60 - 240cm
Spread: 36 - 108 inches / 90 - 180cm
AGM: The RHS Award of Garden Merit. Plants awarded an AGM are:

This is an absolute stunner and a plant that would definitely be in my top 40. It's not one for the feint hearted and needs room to grow but it's well worth it. Always popular with our customers I definitely know why.
