Purple form (main species?) of white thistle

Low-lying white thistle, seemingly of same species as purple ones nearby (pic attached). Poor picture makes flower look pinkish but it's pure white. Thistle is tight, prickly rosette at ground level, not sending up any stems. Apologies for terrible pics - from my phone.

Thanks for the quick ID. Is it not unusual to have a white form, though?
