Butomus umbellatus 'Schneeweisschen' is a selected colour variety of the British native flowering rush, Butomus umbellatus. Like the wild form, it has very slender leaves and produces tall umbels of flowers in summer, but it has lighter green stems rather than the usual red, and blooms that are almost white instead of the standard pink. It makes a pleasing contrast to the Red Form of this plant if grown together.
Butomus plants like plenty of room for their roots to spread as they grow, so we would suggest starting your plant off in a pot of at least 2 litres capacity. Read more here on how to pot and care for your plant.
