Dictamnus albus var. purpureus

Bushy, upright perennial 2-3’ tall and wide with glossy, pinnate, fragrant foliage. Racemes of fragrant, five petaled purplish-pink flowers top the stems late spring thru early summer. Flowers emit a flammable oil which can be ignited by a match on a still summer night (does not hurt plant). Good cut flower. Resents disturbance after planting. Prefers evenly moist fertile soils (not soggy) in full sun. Slow to establish but thereafter a long-lived, low maintenance plant. Bait for slugs and snails when foliage emerges in spring. Rarely offered.
