'Einar Wibom'

Nodding, bell-shaped, white flowers with pale yellow staminodes. Named after the accountant from whose garden Magnus Johnson obtained the seed which produced this cultivar.

Cuttings from Jan Lindmark's 'Einar Wibom' were taken to the UK by Malcolm Oviatt-Ham. We believe that Sheila Chapman obtained plants by this route and for some time sold the form as alpina sibirica 'Finland'.
