Long flowering downy wands produce long-tubed 1/2 inch wide white flowers (that change to pink as they age) from June through October and sometimes well into November, the flowers open a few at a time resulting in a long bloom period on each wand, the basal leaves can form a rosette as much as 2 feet across but the leaves on the flowering wand are tiny, often found where soil is moist but will tolerate dry conditions (even clay & gravel), good pollen and nectar source, self-sows readily. Note: this plant is a BIENNIAL.
