    Is it Lunaria annua Chedglow?

    Think its a variety called Lunaria chedglow, I bought some seeds from Chelsea a few years ago and now have lots of it in the garden.  It's lovely.

    Lovely. Thanks. I might give honesty and sweet rocket a go next year.

    Have you posted photos of it @Yviestevie? I think that’s where I know it from. Lovely plant and it’s on my wish list for when I’ll have a bigger garden (if ever). I dream about it being intermingled with Ammi majus and swaying in the breeze... 🥰

    The rocket smells wonderfull as you walk through this arch.

    ... yes, ammi too. I'm not quite organised enough for biennials.

    I can do biennials that organise themselves :)

    @Fire once you have sweet rocket and chedglow it comes back every year as it self seeds.  I grow ammi as an annual and plant it with cosmos towards the back of the border so that it  weaves in between the roses.
