Gas plant bears wands of cupped pink or white flowers on shining dark green foliage in mid- to late spring. When in bloom, it's one of the showiest plants in the garden. It's also a charming cut flower.
The flowers give off a flammable gas, which is the source of its common name. The combustible oil may irritate skin, so if you have sensitive skin, wear gloves when working with gas plant.
