Pretty cream flowers on a fine, airy plant to 75cm. A lovely self-seeding perennial to mix with ornamental grasses etc in drained soil in full sun. Hardy.
Greyish foliage combined with the pale yellow flowers makes for a good effect with other grey foliage plants and a few bright red or purple flowers for contrast!
Native to much of Europe and Asia.
