PLANT OF THE WEEK
If you’re a fan of floaty see-through perennials, this one’s for you.
It’s a very elegant plant with slim tapering spires covered in dainty white flowers.
Also known as Culver’s root, there are different coloured varieties available as well – such as lilac (‘Apollo’) and pale pink (‘Pink Glow’).
Plant them in sun or partial shade in rich soil that doesn’t dry out. They all work well in a prairie or cottage garden planting scheme, and look great when planted with ornamental grasses.
