See below: * * References



From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: Himebotaru (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2014) 35". The falls on this variety are more round than the other introduced whites and I think the white is more of a pure white than the others. It has proved to be very vigorous and a heavy bloomer. Once in a while it will produce flowers with five falls and five style arms. Oh, how I wish it would do that all of the time. $20.00
