Description:

Only one plant found amongst acres of Red Campion; Rose suggests Red Campion hybrids can have pinkish-white flowers, but these look too white for it to be a hybrid.

I'm told that white forms of red campion exist ...

... and I've seen a white form of the hybrid in a population of varying colour.

White Red Campion

I have heard the same, so I was suspicious that one White would exist amongst thousands, possibly millions, of Red. However, the only pictures/descriptions I have found suggest (perhaps incorrectly) that this is White.
