Numerous tiny white flowers make up a larger, dome shaped flower head. Each flower has tiny purple dots that draw pollinators in for both a pollen and/or nectar reward. Needle-like foliage is dense, but graceful and adds lots of texture to the garden. After blooming, flowers are replaced with clusters of dark gray seed heads that contrast strikingly with the foliage as it turns from green to yellow. Small, green and purple basal leaves will remain close to the ground over winter. Looks great planted in clusters or as a low, informal hedge. It does not spread like other members in the genus, but stays in a large clump form.
