It was always an oddity when I did my botany (too long ago). It was not thought to be closely related to anything else. it was one of a couple of plants that Keeble Martin made a non-scientific comment about. He (being a man of the cloth) called it a "symbol of Christian watchfulness".

I have found another clump on a bridleway about a mile away. This time it's growing on a bank under a hedge in damp conditions. Again just one isolated clump.
