Beautiful cream color (near-white); heavy substance. Slow to increase, but when it hits its stride (maybe the third year?), it's a strong performer.

The truest white I have. In sunlight it really shines out. Mine has been slow to increase - I have not divided it in 5 years. But it's worth it for the color.
