This is absolutely beautiful!
It has the lovely name (bridal wreath) too!
I can't wait to see this in my garden!
Does it flower from the year 1 (from seed)???

Is really pretty isn't it, just has rosettes of crinkly leaves then these spikes rise up around 3ft tall, another you have to sow on the surface in spring, tiny seeds, just put in a warm spot not direct sun and mist with a fine sprayer, to keep moist, you'll end up with thousands of these, they grow like mustard and cress,lol.
Don't think it flowered till second year here.
