Plant details

Found growing in Japan in 1900, it is now a big seller. The flower has clear white petals in midsummer, greenish yellow at the base, that are nicely held above the soft green leaves. It is one of the most popular forms. It will thrive in most damp soils, and looks especially good planted next to a pond.
