‘Else Frye’

❁ White flowers, VIII–X; mid-green foliage; height 21–25cm; spread 31–45cm. Very similar to ‘Alba Plena‘, but the foliage is a little darker and the flower-spikes a little longer on unpruned plants.

Sport “on a pink-flowered plant”; found by Mrs Frye about 1940 in her garden at Seattle, Washington, USA; originally propagated by Frances Robertson, nurseryman to Professor Frye, and reputedly introduced into Britain by F. J. Chapple.

Named after Mrs Frye, the wife of the Professor of Botany at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA
