It is a robust herbaceous perennial that forms a clump of large, lobed, wavy-edged blue-green leaves. It grows mainly on seaside shingle and sandy beaches above the high tide line. The plant bears dense racemes of small white flowers in early summer. Honey-fragrant, clustered sprays of white, flowers (with four petals) rise from the basal leaves. From May to July, this plant bears large flat-topped clusters of white flowers. It is pollinated by many insects as it has fragrant aroma. Young or blanched leaves are cooked and eaten.
