Dear Friends,
	I got this plant from Panayoti Kelaidis 
from the Denver Bot Gard.  without a species name 
attached. Considering the source it could be ANY 
species. I've donated seed to the exchange a 
couple of times just as sp..

	From Mark McD's pix… 
I suspect it is ramosum, but when I try to key it 
out , they all look kind of alike.

	Oddly they grow readily from seed, but I 
have never had a self sown seedling from the many 
MANY seeds dropped in the area.

	I like it a lot, but it doesn't seem to 
thrill many folks. Right now it is one of the 
best blooming plants in the garden. Dozens of 
flowers at once and dazzling white in summer sun.

	Best		Jim W.
