Clumps of attractive foliage support purple and white pincushion flowers.
Masterwort is an exceptionally good cut flower and also attractive in the garden. This selection produces umbels of pincushion-shaped white flowers with magenta-purple tips, arranged like spokes on a wheel. Cut fresh or dry for winter display. Midsized in habit, great for the mid border or in containers. Dead-head regularly to promote more buds and to discourage self seeding all over. Performs best when given a rich, evenly moist soil. USPPP: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
