Aster alpinus var. albus

The alpine asters are short, clump-forming perennials, with large daisy flowers, usually pink or pale purple with yellow centres. Their stature and liking for well-drained soil make them obvious rock garden species. They include the European species Aster alpinus, and many other species from North America and Asia.

Aster alpinus var. albus has white flowers with yellow centres, instead of the usual pinky-purple colour.
