Hi, I thought at first this was Sweet Rocket but too early and wrong leaves. Any ideas. It is growing in Mt. Usher gardens in Wicklow. Brilliant garden if you can get to see it.




Is it Lunaria annua 'Alba'? It looks like mine, Vincent.

Yes, That's what I was going to say too; common name 'Honesty'.

My first thought too . . . White Honesty. (There's also a white H. with variegated leaves which I have: luckily seeds itself happily!)

Thanks for the answer, folks. It is amazing that I have lived with the common purple one all my life and did not recognize this. It seems to be rare as there are very few photos on google images yet this garden has hundreds of plants.
Thanks again, another one bites the dust!

We all do it Vincent . . . then when we're told the 'answer' we say "Oh, of COURSE!"
