ciliatum is just out here -

ciliatum is just out here - the large flowers suggest that to me - can you check the upper stem and confirm that there are no dense spreading glandular hairs?

Hairs

I've had another look today and can't see any hairs but I'm not 100% sure where I'm looking and what I'm looking for. I've added another image which is the best close up of the flower stems that I can get with my camera and lens.

Glands

I cannot see any stem glands on a blow-up of photo 2.
