Drooping flower spikes, at first closed and green then breaking into feathery white flowers, somewhat like overblown catkins, are suspended from July to October on tall wiry stems emerging from clumps of grassy foliage. A good choice to dot about in your herbaceous border where it will display well through neighbouring planting. Very few good seeds collected.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
