http://www.bhg.com/gardening/plant-dictionary/perennial/masterwort/ Masterwort has a flower like no other, delicately colored and with a shape that has been described as both a pincushion and dustmop. This cottage charmer grows best in cool climates -- it struggles in the South. The domed flower clusters bloom atop wiry branched stems. White, rose, and pink flowers can occur in the same plantin
