A marvellous double flowered form of the species, even if it looks a little tatty here. It stands up to the weather far better than 'Waterlily' and lasts well.

I am very fond of the ragged white flowers, always hoping that I will get to see them before slugs and the weather damage them too much. I have to be fast, it doesn't take long. I have planted a few around the garden now, I can't make up my mind if I want to add them to the 'Waterlily' bulbs under the trees or if I want to keep the display more uniform. One day I will make a decision.
