A rarely seen clump forming species with pretty white flowers in clusters on stems to 80cm. Clumps of slightly felted grey-green foliage. Ordinary soil in sun or light shade.

A lovely addition to a spring/early summer border particularly somewhere that will be more shaded later in the season. The white flowers really sparkle in that spring sunshine!
