Enjoy weeks of bright white, blushed green blooms of lush, green foliage. After the flower has finished, the cone elongates to the eponymous cylindrical shape as the seeds ripen. They will remain decorative for some time after. As the seeds mature they will develop cottony tufts for scattering by the wind.
The soft, divided leaves form a lovely soft feature in the garden for many months.
Plant into moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Ideal in a morning sun position in the garden. They really aren’t fussy and will bring you a long display for very little effort. Water to establish, then only if rainfall is low during growth, they have good dry tolerance.
