Caltha Palustris Var. Alba Plants

The white flowery form of our local marsh marigold which luxuriates in wet boggy ground or even as a minor flower in a lake. Its simple, but wonderful flowers open in springtime just before the shiny simply foliage is fully unfurled. A second small cleanse of blossom is often created in early fall.
