In the part shade cast by a sweet-gum (which is much hated by my wife) to the south side of our house, this perennial throws up around a dozen wiry reddish stems that top out, with flowers, at around two feet.
This specimen sits near the end of a run of perforated drain pipe, which while I wouldn't classify the area as being generally moist, it's better off than many other areas in the yard. In any case, the plant is doing well enough that I have found seedlings of it in the general area.
|A flush of five-petalled white flowers appears some time between mid-May and early June.|
|More blooms may appear sporadically over the remaining growing season.|
|Orange pushing toward red, 2010.|
