A short-lived but spectacular looking herbaceous perennial with dark green leaves and unusual creamy white feathery flower heads reputedly produced all year round. Good for sunny rockeries and borders or in a decorative pot. Tolerant of cold, heat and drought when established. Needs a well drained soil, feed with a good native fertiliser through the warm months, watering in afterwards to avoid leaf or root burn. A great cut flower.
