Gas Plant
Gas Plant Dictamnus albus ‘Purpureus’ Terminal spikes of pretty light pink 5-petaled flowers with long protruding stamens. Also called Purple Dittany.

Flowers and star-shaped seed pods contain flammable oils that flare in a quick vapor burn when touched by a flame. This is harmless to the plant and a sight to behold! Look it up on YouTube, or better yet, try it yourself on a windless night.

Forms bushy clumps of leathery glossy green pinnate leaves. Aromatic foliage can cause allergic skin reactions in some people, so wear gloves when handling.

Plant 18–20" apart in full sun in infertile humusy well-drained soil. 24–36" tall. Z3.

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock immediately. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable, not soft or brittle. If they are slightly dry, add a little water or, if they are going to be potted up soon, wet the roots. Generally, a little surface mold is harmless and will not affect the plant’s future performance. If you cannot pot them up immediately, store them in a cool (35–40°) location for a short time.
Pot up the rootstock using well-drained potting mix in a deep 6" pot or a 1-gallon container. Avoid coiling the roots in under-sized containers.
Grow newly potted perennials for a few weeks in a protected location in indirect light at 50–60°. Wet and/or cold conditions for an extended period may cause rotting of the root crowns.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
