Billowy domes of glistening white flowers gradually turn a ruddy fawn color over a period of months in late summer and fall. This long-lived gorgeous wildflower from the Chihuahuan grasslands of the Southwest will light up your xeriscape . A perfect complement for rabbitbrush, Russian sage and Sunset hyssop.

Tips from the pros: Reseeds readily so deadhead spent flowers when finished blooming. Seedlings are easy to pull.
