Caltha Palustris Alba
This is the very rare, white flowered form of our normally yellow native marsh marigold, which luxuriates in damp boggy soil or even as a marginal plant in a pond, but will also do well in ordinary, moist garden soil. Its golden-eyed, ivory-white blooms open in spring just before the glossy leaves are fully unfurled. A second flush of bloom is very often produced in early autumn.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
