You must of course know why it is called Miss Wilmot' Ghost, cause she used to have seeds of this in her pockets, when visiting other peoples' gardens, secretly dispersing them.

Just had to buy a new plant after growing it in the garden for over 30 years!! Siris it is amazing how many people do not know the story behind the plant, has been a favourite of ours for many years, like the Silibum, that didn't return this year either.....
