White flowers with a hint of pink when ageing.
This variety was showcased by us in 2017 at RHS Chelsea as a contender for plant of the year and made it into the top 20 short list. Perfect for the alpine garden or container these long leafed, fully hardy and free flowering varieties are a delight. The long foliage allows for drainage to occur even in the wettest of seasons so perfect for the average gardener that sometimes struggles with other forms.
