- Position: partial shade
- Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral to slightly acidic soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: June
- Hardiness: fully hardy
A charming perennial that bears masses of delicate, star-shaped white flowers in midsummer. In autumn, the pretty, three-leafed foliage turns fiery red and the winter seedheads are a bonus too. Lovely towards the front of a shady, woodland border, where the flowers can be appreciated.
- Garden care: Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Protect young shoots from slug attack.
“Understated and elegant, spidery white flowers held in russet-red cups on long wiry stems - they bend towards light underpinned by three-leaflets - the shady equivalent of breathy gypsophila”
