Francoa sonchifolia--Bridal Wreath--Francoaceae
Bridal Wreath is in a family I have never heard of before, the Francoaceae. And no wonder! Plants in this family only grow in Chile. Judging from photos I have seen online, flower color ranges from white to pink to lavender. It is evergreen and long blooming. The flower wands rise gracefully above the thick, low-growing foliage, making a lovely tapestry on the ground. Likes part shade and some water.
