Availability: In Stock
A fabulous flower for mixed bouquets, the large, rounded umbels of 'Green Mist' start out a bold green, turning to white as the tiny flowers open. Also known as bishop's flower or false Queen Anne's lace, this practically care-free annual is an easy-to-manage addition to any garden, as it is fairly drought tolerant once established. Rich in nectar, it attracts beneficial insects. Take care when cutting, as the sap may irritate sensitive skin; wear gloves when harvesting or wash well after.
