Butomus Umbellatus Schneeweisschen - Flowering Rush

Flowering Rush Schneeweisschen

A very attractive cultivar of the possibly native flowering rush, Butomus umbellatus Schneeweisschen (Snow-White) is a fast-growing, herbaceous, marginal plant of still water with a creeping, rhizomatous habit. The green leaves are narrow and grass-like. In June and July, tall stems carry open umbels of pure white flowers, carried above the leaves. Flowering rush Schneeweisschen will spread indefinitely if not planted in an aquatic basket, but it needs dividing regularly, as it will not flower if congested. Attractive to dragonflies, bees, butterflies and hoverflies.
