A classic perennial that has received renewed attention as of late. Very strong, tall stems carrying white, open flaring, 6-petaled flowers with long, eyelash-like stamens appear from late spring into midsummer (earlier in warmer zones). Interesting star-shaped, brown seed pods develop in fall and are pretty in dried flower arrangements. This perennial forms a bushy clump of dark green, leathery, pinnate leaves that smell of lemons when crushed. Deer typically leave this plant alone due to its aromatic foliage, but butterflies enjoy its blossoms. Dictamnus is rumored to get its common name from a light volatile gas that is emitted from the plant, though we haven’t tested this theory ourselves.
