I have one clump of this, and four of C. latifolia var Macrantha. The white form blooms a week or so later than the Purple Macrantha and just after C. calycanthema. The C. latifolia alba is 3 ft tall in my border while the Macrantha is close to 5 ft. in 4 locations. The leaves are narrower at the top of the plant than those at the base.

I would appreciate a review of the naming in Latin and English.
