This new introduction will appeal to those who prefer quiet contemplation. It is a dainty to delight the eye and nourish the senses. What it lacks in flower size it more than compensates by releasing its strong clove scented perfume by day and night. The 8 flowered umbels which stand proud of the linear foliage are composed of dainty flowers of palest purple-pink with a corona which is at first yellow-green, maturing to light yellow-brown. For its modesty, and charm it is therefore named after my grandmother Lilian Evans. Height 30-37 cm. May - July and intermittently afterwards.
