In spite of this plant’s delicate appearance, it thrives in the heat and lasts a surprisingly long time in the vase. Plants are quite tough, and each produces a flush of 15-20 branching stems loaded with multiple silvery-white flowers. Long, wiry wands have a delicate, graceful quality and smell like desert sage.
