the flower buds are finely lila,
bloom white in the middle of a small delicate lilac spot
It is an old variety,
can you recognize?

It looks to me like 'David', although I'm not sure whether there are other pure white cultivars!

oh, I see--there is a faint pink circle around the center! That is new to me. Very pretty, though.

A German site has several cultivars, Blushing Bride looks possible ..

http://www.helenium-phlox.de/phlox/blushing-bride

On the following site it says "Blushing Bride is listed on the Hardy Plant society as under conservation" which suggests an older cultivar. Leaf colour could be due to soil conditions.

Thank You! Janet
I guess it will be Blushing Bride
Although we have a lot of bland spots. I tip my hat to you.

You're welcome Stefan. It's amazing how different the cultivars look to one another when you view them in succession.
