Lobelia siphilitica alba, or White Great Lobelia, is native to the eastern two thirds of the United States, except Florida. It grows in moist prairies, meadows, swamp edges, ditches, and wet open woods, as well as woodland edges. It blooms in mid to late summer, with stalks of large white flowers.

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.
