Also known as Gayfeather. Widely grown as a commercial cut flower, this is selected from one of our native prairie wildflowers. Plants form a low clump of grassy looking leaves, bearing tall spikes of clean white flowers beginning in midsummer. Very useful in the sunny border or meadow garden, or in containers. Drought tolerant. Attractive to butterflies. Clumps may be easily divided every 3 to 4 years in the spring. Plants may need to be staked. Beautiful in combination with the purple forms.
