A small size perennial of relatively moist places that will draw attention mostly because of its interesting white flowers. They have a whorl of sterile stamens (staminodes) with drop-like honey-coloured ends that attract but not reward flies and other small insects. The reward, nectar, is produced at the base of the staminodes.
One of those species that interestingly can be encountered high up in the mountains on wet flower meadows, but also on lowlands and fens. It has a wide plasticity and in cultivation can do well with just regular watering.
A good plant for late season flowering along the pond edges, streams or any slightly moist area of the garden. Think to combine it with Gentianopsis virgata and Triantha glutinosa with which it is found often growing together in the wild.
Germination: sown in the fall or spring, after cold-moist stratification.
