From Crete comes this enchanting, rarely seen, cottagey, go-with-everything annual everyone should try.Extra large, 4-5” sparkling, pure white, lace cap flower heads appear in profusion floating atop lush, ferny, emerald green foliage. To 3’ x 2’, you’ll get months of bloom, especially when you snip the blooms – so pretty in bouquets! Tough, easy, fast and a swell rest stop for butterflies and other pollinators. Self-sows = free plants! Not fussy, but best in rich, well drained soil. Note: This is not “Queen Anne’s Lace”.
