Rare ghostly white flowered variant of the typically dark-flowered Veratrum formosanum .  We lusted after this plant since the 90's after seeing it recorded in the Flora of Taiwan and finally secured it from the legendary Jim Sutherland at Scotland's Ardfearn Nursery just a few years ago. So excited we tossed our caber.   Is it better than the typical formosanum?  No.  More collectible?  Oh, hell yeah! Deer resistant.  We conservatively list this hardy to zone 6 but it is likely hardy to 5 or even 4.
