About This Plant

Partial sun. A unique herbaceous biennial with large, soft leaves and plentiful white flowerheads in autumn. It’s in early winter that frostweed is most memorable: with the first freeze of the year, the stems transform into billowing ice sculptures. Frostweed fares well in thin soils if there’s adequate shelter from western summer sun. Best planted by seed, it’s also available from specialty native growers.

Maintenance

None required.
