A beautiful native wildflower found growing throughout northern temperate zones. The name was inspired by its dense clusters of white pearl-like flowers atop long stems which dry well and are excellent in dried flower arrangements. Although no longer used medicinally, North American natives formerly used it to treat diarrhea and dysentery, and for lung infections. It was also applied as a poultice on bruises, burns, swellings and ulcers. The young leaves are edible when cooked, and the flowers and stalks are a source of yellow, gold, green and brown dyes. Prefers sandy loam soils but will grow in most soils, including poor soils. Requires full sun. Ht. 1m/3ft.
