For sale by Lewis Cottage Plants

This grower is sure of this plant identification.

Reliable and long-lived perennial which provides attractive vertical accents to a planting. Sword like leaves encircle slender wiry stems. Simple pure white flowers open progressively up each stem to culminate in a fine airy show followed by handsome black seedheads. Associates well with fine grasses like Stipa tenuissima in a gravel planting,though also useful as a feature plant in a pot which is how we use it at Lewis Cottage.
