What is this plant?

Apologies for the poor photo, I’ve attempted to zoom in on an advert in a magazine. It’s the plant with the grassy foliage and tall white flowers near the box ball. Thanks.

    Is the photo working? I can’t see it on my screen.

    Site problem atm - can't upload photos

  • There's a glitch on the site at the moment Splandy, and photos aren't uploading.  You can either upload your photos onto a photo-hosting site and post a link here, or wait until tomorrow when hopefully the tech team will be able to sort it out.

    Or maybe tell us what the magazine is and the date and page number ... perhaps someone will have a copy?

    Thanks for the info, hopefully this will work!

    I can already see that I pasted the wrong thing. Let’s hope this is the correct one

  • Looks a bit like Viburnum opulus Roseum. The foliage seem to belong to another plant.

    Hello Splandy. The white flower you refer to looks a little bit like Libertia grandiflora. Perhaps if you Google that plant you may recognise it.

    Thanks but I didn’t mean the shrub one, I meant the one just in front of the box ball. Grassy foliage and fairly long stems with individual white flowers on the top.

    Sorry ladybird4, cross posted with you there. Just googled it and it does look similar but has a few flowers up a stem rather than one at the top. I do also like that one so will save it too.

  • Sorry, some sort of Armeria probably.
