Description: This is the pure white form of Blue Eyed Mary. Much more of a creeper than its cousin, cappadocica and earlier to start flowering in the year. Omphalodes verna ‘Alba’ will spread quite freely in any cool leafy soil that is not too wet producing a wide mat of rich green foliage dotted here and there with pure white flowers. Very good to bring a sparkle of white into a dark corner. A lovely creeping species form Eastern Europe. Grows best in bright shade in humus rich soil, but relatively adaptable.

Care: Cut down after flowering if desired.
