Description
 
A white flowered variant of this familiar Geranium whose flowers are backed by a green calyx rather than pink which adds to its overall indispensable lightness of being.  The paler than normal green leaves accentuate this and makes this valuable for brightening a somber corner or tempering hotter colors.  This was found on Mt Olympus in Greece on a Ness Botanic Garden Expedition and introduced by the same.  We should have thought more about our name - 'White-Far' 'Far White' 'White Reach' 'Reach White' just doesn't get it - those Brits one-up us on plants again - buggers!  This will handle dry shade to mostly sun and is nearly a mythic plant for those tough places and somehow thrives under the regime of absentee gardening.
