Can anyone help - don't know what this clump forming perennial is, in flower early May?


  • Hesperis matronalis?

    Aka Dame's Violet or Sweet Rocket.  Sweetly scented in the evening.
    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.
  • Thank you, but definitely not. Only about 12" to 18" tall - straight erect stems. But thanks for suggestion.

    A view of the vertical plant with foliage, allowing us to see the growth habit would be more likely to get a correct ID. 

    Height achieved by Hesperis matronalis depends a lot upon growing conditions. 

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

  • Thanks. Will take better photo tomorrow
