Rock garden plant featuring creamy white flowers with yellow stamens, and deeply divided light green leaves. The photo at right shows the funny bald heads after flowering, which will develop into fluffy seed clusters in another few weeks.
In recent years, I've grown it in an area colonized by green carpet rupturewort, which makes a nice background for the white flowers.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

Seedlings sometimes suffer from inability to shed their fluffy seedcoats in indoor conditions. I find that leaving sprouted seeds in their baggy for a few days helps the seed leaves escape, making the seedlings more likely to survive.
