Description:

This species is an established alien on the Isle of Wight, where it is particularly established in secondary woods on the Undercliff.A garden escape, it has been prolific this autumn.The white form is not that common and I caught this in weak winter sunlight late in the afternoon last week.
The marbled foliage which normally comes after the flowers is a very attractive feature.
