Description

This dramatic plant can be seen blooming along Skyline every spring. Large clusters of white flowers are held by stout six foot tall stems. The bold leaves are easily a foot in width. Takes full sun and drought near the coast; needs afternoon shade and a little water inland. A nice plant to use at the back of a border or in a meadow garden, where its spring show will be appreciated and it won't be missed when it disappears for the winter. Combines well with ferns and grasses.
