Extremely long flowering. Myriad dainty white flowers on branching, wire-thin stalks. Flowers fading to pink. Self-seeds readily.
Best in sharply drained soil. Very tolerant. Good for thin soil or gravel in full sun. Cut hard back to tidy.
Will thrive in wall and paving crevices and other inhospitable spots. Good for softening hard landscaping edges. Useful in pots and planters.
A favourite plant of Gertrude Jekyll.
