Description: A native of mixed hardwoods and floodplains, this delicate woodland makes one soften his step when noticed. The stems extent graceful arms up only to finish in a lovely cluster of mitten like leaves. From within the stems, the spray of soft white flowers look like a floral fireworks that droop to extent the yellow anthers for pollination by the wind.
