Wish list addition: Dictamnus albus

I’ve heard of this plant while reading about perennials but hadn’t seen even so much as a picture until earlier this year. I was looking for more info about it when it came to me that maybe there was something on YouTube. Yup.

It gets points for being a stunning specimen plant and bonus points for the trick with the fire. It’s also very hardy and seems to be low maintenance. This is on my “Will absolutely buy when I see it available even though I don’t have anywhere to put it” list.

    It actually WORKS? I spent a good chunk of a summer TRYING to get my gas plant to do that and concluded it was just a myth. I was so annoyed I didn't take it with me when I moved. Man, now I'm going to have to get another one and spend another summer playing with matches and probably burning myself.

  2. OMG! This needs to be in the danger garden for sure!

  3. Awesome! The pyro in me now loves this plant. 😛
