Great plants not requiring a lot of care. Drought-tolerant, tolerates poor soil and will easily naturalize and produce more plants nearby. Good plant that attracts butterflies, bees and other insects. In the spring, these beautiful white flowers will really brighten up your garden! Seeds will form which can be planted or scattered elsewhere to start new colonies. Cutting back the bloom stalks after seeding is over helps to keep the garden looking tidy.
