There is a double form of A. ptarmica(A. ptarmica'The Pearl') that is widely cultivated and reputed to be in cultivation since the 16th century.When grown well can be quite spectacular but often prone to powdery mildew!

I did not notice this one being a double. It is growing in a damp ditch on heathland...no reason why it should be from cultivation. Just an ordinary wild Sneezewort, I think.

Sorry Ophrys,I meant to say 'there is a double form', typographical slip!Just thought you may be interested because the double form has long been cultivated and is often seen in herbaceous borders.
I see!! I thought it rather odd you were trying to make it a cultivated form! Thanks for info, David...I'm not good on garden plants...I'll look out for it.
