Description

An easy and elegant plant to grow. Lovely cascading over a path at the front of a border, and in a vase. One of our newfounf favourites. Dries brilliantly too.

Care Tips

The fresh and dried seed stalks are wonderful in flower arrangements. Flower stems can be left on the plant through winter. They will naturally die back, but tidy up in spring by cutting back stems close to ground level.
