Can someone identify this Verbascum?

United Kingdom Gb

On a recent visit to Osterley I spotted a very pretty Verbascum (mullein) with pale pinky-white flowers with a darker purple centre on stems that were deep red/purple rather than the more common hairy white stems. Any ideas what variety this might be?



It sounds very much like Verbascum chaixii 'Album' .

Thanks very much. I thought it might be, but the only photos I could find didin't show the red stems clearly enough to be sure.
