White Gas Plant

White Gas Plant

Dictamnus albus ‘Albiflorus’ Terminal spikes of pure white 5-petaled flowers with long protruding stamens.

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, get yourself a fire permit and see for 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. 30" tall. Z3. (bare-root crowns)

Additional Information

Herbaceous Perennial Plants

When you receive your order, open the bags and check the stock. Roots and crowns should be firm and pliable. 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.

Do not plant bare-root perennial plant crowns directly outdoors.

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.
Transplant outside once they show some top growth and the danger of frost has passed.
