There is also a white form of this plant, Centranthus alba.

Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

The white form is not a different species, though... it's just a white form of Centranthus ruber, so it's written as Centranthus ruber 'Albus'.

I don't know where I saw that name-form, but you are correct.
It's 'Albus'; like Dumbledore ;)
