Trachelium is widely used as a filler in bouquets or elegantly displayed as “mono” bouquets. The lacey lightly scented dark purple flowers initiate under long day conditions (needs 16 to 18 hours of day length or night interruption to initiate the large central umbel with smaller side umbels or "satellites"). Transplant in late spring-summer for summer-early fall flowering. The 30-42” stems have excellent vase life and ship well.
