Its very prolific apparently, grows about 2ft tall, not particularly scented. It looks vaguely familiar but I can’t think what it is   Thanks

    Thanks Mary. The foliage is similar, so could well be. I’m asking for a friend, who was given it by her neighbour. She’s going to ask a local nurseryman so if I get a definitive answer I’ll post back. 🙂

    I agree with Nut. They form tubers which will overwinter in a mild winter, but otherwise, as you have found, they grow easily from seed.
