I have had great luck with this plant. It doesn't seem to spread very quickly and I haven't planted more, yet. In building my research/information book, I couldn't find what it was called. Now I know; I can order more. It does real well here in Liberty, Missouri (north suburb of K.C.MO) The foilage is very ferny and the white blooms are beautiful. Wished it lasted longer.
