This first-year flowering hardy perennial is the rarer white form of the blue Cupid's Dart. White semi-double star-like flowers, occasionally flecked with blue, 5cm (2in), stand upon long wiry stems held well above the neat grey green foliage. Together with the silvery buds, this plant makes an eye-catching cut flower, or border plant. Height: 60-90cm (24-36in).

Water in after planting and until fully established, an occasional good soaking in very hot weather is helpful. The papery bracts surrounding the flower bud can be dried to make 'everlastings'.
When well grown gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions and plant out 45cm (18in) apart in full sun and well drained, ordinary garden soil.

All of the seeds from the packet germinated. They are still flowering away (mid November), and do not appear to be effected by the wind, rain or frost. their everlasting blooms mean that I now have a wonderful bunch to display in my house through the winter.
