Description

This makes a fabulous plant for the back of a border, combining maximum height with a very open, airy habit. It's topped with pretty pale yellow-green scabious-type flowers on tall, willowy stems.

Care Tips

May require support in exposed spots. Cut back to the ground after flowering to encourage a second flush of blooms. Will self-seed. Divide large clumps in spring.
