White flowers spring to fall on stalks with lacy, fern-like foliage. Hardy, easy to grow - an excellent addition for sunny wildflower meadows and pollinator parking strips. Spreads by rhizomes and re-seeds easily. Attracts many small flies, bees, and beneficial insects.
Seed Sowing instructions: scatter seed on loose-weed free soil. Seed can be lightly raked in to increase seed-to-soil contact, but be careful not to cover the seed with more than 1/4" soil.
Recommend sowing between September and November or in March so that seeds will benefit from seasonal rains. If sowing in April or May, seeds will benefit from supplemental water to encourage strong growth the first year.
