Delphinium tricorne alba, or White Dwarf Larkspur, is native to the middle and southern segment of the Appalachian Mountain area, as well as west into the Ozark area. It is a perennial that grows in open woods, on woodland edges, and in open prairies. It blooms in mid to late spring, with medium-sized light to dark purple flowers. This species is an ephermeral - that means it completely disappears underground after blooming and setting seed, only to reappear again the following season.

More information will be posted on telling this species from others soon.

This is not an actual different species, but is a variant of the original species, a sort of "albino" that can occur anywhere that this plant occurs.
