From Joe Pye Weed catalog, 2010: MONTROSE WHITE - SPEC-cristata. Schafer/Sacks 6", EM. We bought this plant many years ago from Nancy Goodwin at Montrose Nursery as I. cristata alba. It is unique among the many albas we grow in its large sized flowers - almost 3 inches. It is a good strong plant. We want to share it as Montrose has been closed for many years. Nancy was pleased to have it introduced - potted. $15.00
