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.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3
