February days find new sea-green blades pushing skyward. By early May, four-foot spires are covered in white star flowers with prominent stamens and pinkish-tan midribs. Bees and butterflies will take advantage! Coming from the Mediterranean, particularly the Catalan coast, but also from N. Africa, it likes rocky hillsides — tough and tolerant. If you can loosely approximate those conditions — well-draining soil and lots of sunshine — you'll be sure to have good results. They even remain attractive in late season when the flowers become shining, golden orbs. Clumping habit to 16" wide.

Minimum temperature: -5ºF
