Floribunda means free flowering. This is a cultivar brought from Japan in the 1860s. The cone shaped flower heads are a mix of small fertile florets surrounded by showier sterile florets with white sepals changing to pink as the season progresses. Our plant has been flourishing since 1987. It’s at the back of the bed and we mulch and prune it once a year.
