Can anyone name this plant for me please.  I posted it here a couple of months ago, but was unable to name it, however now it is in flower and with plenty of buds it may be easier to identify. It is growing in my wild flower area, is it WILD?  Thank you.

    Looks like Hesperis matronalis
    How can you lie there and think of England
    When you don't even know who's in the team

    S.Yorkshire/Derbyshire border

    I agree ...  Hesperis matronalis Alba ... gorgeous  scent on warm evenings. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    Thank you Dove and Punkdoc, I have now googled the name, also known as Sweet Rocket - yes the flowers are very similar to Honesty and I am pleased that it may self seed in our wild flower patch. Thank you.
