      A clump forming evergreen perennial with finely dissected fern-like foliage and flat heads of ivory coloured flowers throughout the warmer months.
      A splendid perennial for a sunny bed. Quickly forms handsome clumps although best planted on mass.
      Feed Well.
      Remove spent flower stems to promote flowering, possibly with a whipper snipper or mower.

      Not particularly vigorous, which could be considered a virtue, but the colour is rather intriguing, the colour of raw silk.

      A modern Sweet pea considered to be one of the most strongly scented. The vigorous plants bear an abundance of large creamy flowers edged in lavender throughout spring and well into summer if given the chance. Remove the spent plants once the seeds have scattered or been harvested.

      Self seeds reliably and performs brilliantly without irrigation although a few drinks late in the season will greatly extend flowering. Happy in any soil from sand to clay that is preferably alkaline (pH > 7).

      Scatter a few seeds around, preferably near something for them climb on or else they make a lovely weed suppressing ground cover, for an instant cottage garden.

      Each packet contains 20+ seeds, enough to cover the average suburban fence.

      A succulent that is merely an attractive clumping perennial for the garden, not a precious for the collection, with rosettes of soft sword-like glaucous leaves heavily margined in cream that tints copper with age. Grandiose panicles of hanging cream bells are held aloft during summer.
      From south eastern North America, semi deciduous here and utterly cold tolerant. Equally at home in the perennial border or simulated desertscape.

      Easily grown in any sunny, well drained soil, I find it less tolerant of wet feet in winter than many of the arborescent species. Drought tolerant but summer water is highly beneficial.
