Clump-forming perennial with showy flat-topped clusters of white flowers appearing above foliage in late summer and early fall.  Foliage is distinctive, with pairs of leaves uniting around the stem so that the stem appears to pass through the leaves.  Prune back plants in early spring to promote bushier growth.  Foliage may scorch if soil dries out.  Tolerates wet soil.  Attracts butterflies, native bees and predatory insects that prey on pest insects.  Flowers are good for cutting.
