I'm not sure if there's a label in here somewhere but this mass planting at RHS Harlow Carr in Yorkshire is stunning, I'd love to know which variety this is.
I've included another photo that I took yesterday of the flowers. I imagine it's a fairly old variety.

Almost certainly 'Undulata Albomarginata'. The other one that is often seen with white margins is 'Francee', but the leaves are generally wider and the margins often narrower. This one (UA) is sometimes referred to "as the one your grandmother grew".

Ah excellent, thank you Ann. Yes Harlow Carr has a large group of Francee so I knew it wasn't that.
