This rarely-seen, tall upright herbaceous perennial produces sprays of tiny, foamy, greeny-white flowers on long stems above fern-like foliage from mid-summer through into autumn which are a magnet for bees and butterflies adding a touch of lightness to any planting scheme. It makes a superb companion to astrantias and was a wow at a recent Chelsea Flower Show.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
