History at Camden Park

The only reference is a handwritten note in an 1850 catalogue in the Mitchell Library collection.  [MP A2947A].  It is probable that this plant was grown at this time.


Perhaps a more likely identification is a white form of a species such as austriacum or perenne, or, most likely, grandiflorum, a very variable species which see.  A modern white cultivar is ‘Bright eyes’, with brownish-red eyes.  [RHSE, Hortus].
