The Dictamnus albus 'Albiflorus', also known as Dittany, Gas Plant, or Gasplant, is a versatile and long-lived plant that is an excellent border filler. Featuring white flowers on a vertical stalk, this plant adds an elegant touch to any garden. The flowers can also come in a range of colors including red, striped, or blue. Reminiscent of an Ash tree, the leaves bring additional charm. A sensitive plant, it should be planted into its permanent position immediately to avoid root disturbance. The real charm of the Dictamnus albus 'Albiflorus' lies in its distinctive fragrance, akin to a blend of lemon peel and fine balsam due to its aromatic essential oil. This unique plant creates a spectacle in hot weather, as the oil emitted can be ignited and burn without causing harm to the plant, giving it its Gas Plant nickname. Some even liken it to the Biblical ‘burning bush’. This unique trait sparks interest and will undoubtedly inspire conversations amongst visitors. Growing to approximately 2 ft high, this plant thrives in dry, sunny positions, especially in warm areas. Highly ornamental, it’s resilient against drought once established.
