Deciduous perennial

This plant rises from the ground in the spring on four to five feet of new arching stems which end in a large mass of airy white flowers. The flower clusters last for several weeks and then turn a tawny brown which eventually turns tobacco brown through the winter till cut down in Febrary/March. It is a stately flower and looks good through the winter in it's flower seed state. It is best on the edge of the forest or thicket and is a great companion for ferns and other lower ground cover plants.
