A white variety of this old-time favorite. Not quite as tall as the pink. Dependable, long-lived garden classic. 'Alba' forms large, bushy clumps of powdery-light green foliage comprised of cut or lobed leaves on fleshy stems. In late spring, chains of puffy, white, heart-shaped flowers dangle beneath the arching, leafless stems. These racemes make delightful additions to fresh bouquets, lasting about 2 weeks in a vase. Best interplanted with hosta or ferns to fill the space in summer.


Requires evenly moist soil with lots of organic content to enhance the water retention. Plant in a protected location with little or no direct sun. Goes dormant after blooming in most areas outside the far north (regular water will delay dormancy). Protect from late spring frosts.
