The many 1" flowers bloom on narrow, 5' - 6' stalks, seeming to float and flutter above the foliage and above whatever is in front of it like small white butterflies. It is beautiful with a green shrub behind it (mine is in front of a burning bush and a Kousa Dogwood) so the flowers really stand out. It blooms all summer long for me and needs no deadheading. It has come back reliably each year for the past 5 years with no dividing.
