Slender white upper petals (the standards) sit above the rounded cream and yellow lower ones (the fall), creating elegant flowers that are perfect for cut early summer arrangements. Wonderful when planted in drifts through the border, or when allowed to form larger clumps in naturalised planting schemes.
Garden care: Plant 10cm deep and 10cm apart in naturalistic drifts in September or October in a well-drained, sunny site.
