Biennial that reseeds.

Perennial/biennial that I've had growing in my garden for many years. The flowers are exquisite as shown in the pictures and in August the flowers have become seed pods, which if you slightly rub the pod - the "skin" of the pod drops off on either side reveling the seeds and a beautiful white papery skin in between that are wonderful when used in dried arrangements or in a vase alone.

I rub the seeds off and let them drop right there and this assures a good crop of these plants the next year. Will reseed itself if totally left alone as well.
