Description

One of our prettiest wild flowers, forming tall powder-puffs standing out above grasses in a meadow and well-behaved enough for planting in the garden. It makes a great cut flower.

Care Tips

A meadow perennial that will gentle spread by seed into grass and borders. Simply leave flower head to go to seed and give them plenty of time to disperse before cutting or mowing back.
