Which are your favorites? I think they are actually pretty rare. The only one I have now is a pastel bicolor Parfait.

I added LILLIAN'S VAPOR TRAILS this year. It tried desperately to bloom in the terrible spring weather so the scapes were shorter but the blooms were lovely.

I have also eyed SCANDINAVIA but never could get my hands on it (not that I tried all that hard).

If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

I have August Frost and it is very nice, opens well, diamond dusted, large and sturdy scapes too. It blooms late as the name implies. I don't know that it gets really tall though, I think height varries alot for different people.

Didn't measure it but Heavenly Snow White is quite tall with large flowers and has grown extremely well for me. I bought it last year, single fan and it now has four fans, most of my other single fan purchases from last year are still single or now double fans.

They are so pretty! Laura, you have a great collection going on. I need to add some white ones. I only have Joan Senior and I don't think the substance is very good. Also Victorian Lace but it is more a creamy color.

I think they do look nice with the darker purple shades. The contrast is stunning.

Lillian's Vapor Trail's first year bloom for me was only about 20 inches off the ground. I will look forward to seeing it next year when it more than likely will be taller.

Was yours new this year? Mine came north and I think was ready to bloom on a southern schedule before falling smack in the middle of much cooler weather. Has rebounded beautifully though. Thumbs up

'Gadsden Icicle' is registered at 38"; I never measured it so I'm not sure that it gets that tall here, but it *is* one of my taller near-whites.



This year the 30" rose-edged cream 'Beautiful Edgings' was about as tall as the recently moved 'Gadsden Icicle'. (I think that GI was shorter this year due to the spring move.)

I will have to measure my BE. It always seems very tall to me!

Yes James, LVT was new this spring so I was surprised it got a scape. It is growing nicely.

The height is the problem I am finding. I have Heavenly Angel Ice and Heavenly White Lightening. But so far they are way shorter than I thought they would be. Blizzard Blast is my tallest but it is more yellow then near white. Last Snowflake has yellow/green in it and again it is way shorter than I had thought it would be here.

Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them. ~Eeyore

'Heavenly Snow White' is 43" tall and impressed me! It's a dormant diploid.
