Branch sport on an unidentified white-flowered cultivar (not extant) believed to have been Erica x darlyensis (but more likely to have been Erica carnea ‘Springwood White’); found in 2001 by C. Gill in his garden in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Registered on 18 November 2004 by Chris Gill, Hamilton, New Zealand.
