A delicate, springy look is created by tiny crimson flowers and feathery gray-green leaves. This plant is great for floral arrangements and grows quickly in the backyard garden. In full to partial sun with dry to moderate moisture, plants are easy to grow. It was once a common wildflower in much of Europe and Asia. In rising temperatures, they begin to melt. This delicate flower has become well-known as a filler in bouquets in the horticulture industry.
