This elegant lacecap has remarkably wide, pure white variegation along the margins of its leaves. The outer ring of sterile flowers are bright white and the delicate inner blooms are a glowing blue in acidic soils and soft pink in alkaline ones. The dramatic blooms coupled with clean, bright foliage naturally draws attention. White variegation reflects light, enhancing the hues of surrounding plants and draws the eye.
