Isnt that blanchetii alba??
There is a chance it could be parthenopipes as well. These two plants seem to be rather confused in cultivation.

Hopefully one day all the confusion with U. parthenopipes will be settled. For now based on recent discussions about U. parthenopipes and what not.. I am calling all these things U. blanchetii white form.
Note I don't call them 'alba' as this is a specific word reserved for nomenclature when a plant lacking anthocyanin is officially described and published as a variety to the normal species.

Tony is right, the variety 'Alba' has not been published either as a variety or as a cultivar. If you want to distinguish the white flowered form from the purple it would be best to list it as "white flowered form" and in double quotes.
