Hello Folks,
I have same plant in my garden. Indeed, I didn't know about it until it grows up. Interesting because this flower is not very usual in Turkey. More interesting is; I have seen it as motif on the freezes of Temple of Hekate in Laguna; actually now in Archaeology Museum of Istanbul.
Greetings,
Asil
