Another really great summer blooming umbel for the garden. A slender 2' perennial with delicate, grass-like leaves and several compound umbels of minute white flowers. Similar to the invasive Queen Anne's Lace but much more elegant. Best planted in tight clumps.
Although the flowers are not brightly colored, this plant in the waterleaf family attracts a wide-variety of native bees making this a must for both upland restorations and native gardens. The flowering stems elongate as they mature with new flowers opening in long succession in mid-summer. Found in dry, rocky habitat at low and high elevations.
