Description Absolutely the rarest offered native perennial. Unusual dark green textured 10" long elongated evergreen foliage all completely and tightly basal developing a full rosette. Multiple thin interesting scaly stems rise up 10-18" from the center of this basal rosette producing snow white flowers measuring 3/8's-1/2" across. A truly eye catching species both in and out of flower. Easy to grow and loves wet saturated soil but will grow average well drained slightly moist soil in full sun to part shade.
