This is a tough, winter hardy perennial. The color is a soft lavender shade, and the tiny flowers are borne on wire-like, thin stems much like Baby's Breath. My wife uses it through September in floral arrangements, especially with roses, phlox, lilies and other late blooming plants. If left undisturbed they have been known to self-sew, but are not otherwise invasive. It makes a good companion plant among Oriental lilies that bloom at the same time and do not grow too high such as Muscadet shown in this picture.
