Southern native perennial wildflower with rough textured, globular clusters of white flowers atop a branching flower stalk. This plant has a very unique look and is great for accents or mixed meadow plantings. When flowers are absent, they may go unnoticed in the dense vegetation and during the flowering time, it’s anything but inconspicuous. Very attractive to pollinators.
