Known as ‘Apache beads’ this variety has beautiful white, scented flowers and broad, dark-green leaves.
It has an interesting origin in Central America; it used to be sold in Mexico's markets to ward off malaria and other diseases. Nowadays, the flowers and leaves can be dried for pot-pourri.
An easy-care perennial, little maintenance is required. Simply trim just above the water surface after foliage has died back in autumn to tidy. Shoots will then re-appear the following spring for beautiful white blooms that are attractive to insects such as dragonflies and damselflies in late-summer.
