Buy Chamerion angustifolium 'Album' white rosebay willow herb (syn. Epilobium angustifolium Album): Decorative, architectural and fast-growing

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: tolerant of most, but prefers moist but well drained, humus rich soil
  • Rate of growth: fast
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Ideal for the larger wildflower garden, or for establishing new borders, this very pretty, summer flowering perennial is much more garden-worthy than the species. It spreads to form sizeable clumps relatively quickly, and from midsummer is crowned with tapering spires of white flowers. It's very impressive when in full bloom - particularly when used to illuminate an area of partial shade.

  • Garden care: Easy to grow and undemanding, they should be deadheaded to prolong flowering, and cut down to just above ground level in autumn. Over-large clumps can be divided in spring or autumn.

White Wonder


Lovely tall white spikey flowers, flowering over a long period late summer/early autumn. Needs to be controlled as it spreads very quickly, but good for my cottage garden as I like its spreading habit.

Lovely, easy to control filler for the garden


Love this plant, easy to control (just pull it up) but it comes back year after year and looks lovely. Lots of compliments although people do tend to go a bit twitchy when I tell them it's rosebay willow herb!!

Attractive flowers but think carefully where you place it


Last year I was very happy - it had very attractive flowers and, reading that it can seed over-freely, I was careful to deadhead. This year I find there are numerous suckers coming up all the place over up to 1 metre from the original plant and maybe only stopped there by a retaining wall. I will have to move it.

White rosebay willowherb


Great filler for herbaceous border. Tall and full, for back/middle of border. Long flowering time with lots of tall white spikes, from early June to Autumn. Fast grower and needs some support to keep it up together. I was thrilled with it.




Good for shady areas


Put it at the back of the border against a privet hedge in a shady part of the garden and it looked great especially with the white flowers it really stood out. was able to cut it back after flowering it then flowered again. Very easy to propagate just dig up chop it into pieces and replant.
