|Shortly after prime bloom, the flowers fade to a burnished tan, which has its own charm |
Returning from the soil in early spring, this perennial quickly balloons into a large plant, with billowing sprays of white flowers by late May. Everything else in its vicinity is overwhelmed. Our original plants are positioned in a northern nook of our garden, with just about complete shade, and are perfectly happy. A more recent acquisition lives in a somewhat sunnier spot near our patio, and seems to be equally happy (and more photogenic, because it doesn't suffer from the grubby white vinyl siding background).

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