I did wonder about ivorine but a friend grows it and hers has a lot smaller flower and it flowers may/june rather than now. It was also a much creamier colour without the tinge of blue on the edges.
when was /is yours in flower Janey?

It could be "Cloudy", but that usually only grows to 2 ft.
"Eleanara" is a good candidate, as it grows to 40".
Mind you, I only grow the Yellow ones, so what do I know?

Possibly aconitum napellus 'Album' - grows four to five feet and flowers mid to late summer

Yep....youre right Sbg........I hadn't noticed the bluey edging, and yes mine was in flower in May.

Thanks for the suggestions I will do a little research. I have 'album' Andrewr and it is pure white and flowered last month, but thanks for the suggestion.
