Tapering towers of glistening white rise from a starry rosette of grey felted foliage. Makes a stunning statement by producing tall white flowering totem poles. A real eye-catcher that always impresses visitors to Heronswood in mid-spring. Dies after flowering, so save some seed.
A biennial plant that flowers in its second year before setting seed. Well suited to sandy soils and coastal exposure. Protect from frost. Short- lived but spectacular.
