Additional Information about Dictamnus albus 'Rosea'

Dictamnus stems produce a citrusy aromatic oil. On still days, a flame held at the base of the flower stem will ignite the oil from the seed pods resulting in a dramatic contained flow of flame up the stem. The flame does not harm the flowers or seed pods.
