From Haugesund. With 3 children and a husband who's seemingly constantly away on business, I garden like it could save my life - and it probably does!

#plantid - any ideas??? It came as a stow away (or perhaps kidnap victim?) with some moss I brought home from the woods some years ago. It has since spread all over that particular border (which is still covered by the relocated moss), but nowhere else in the garden, so if it self-seeds it doesn't seem to travel far.

It's very pretty sorry I don't know what it is though

@emve ... Hi, I think it looks like Arctic Starflower........ so pretty. I don’t think it sets seeds but spreads by runners.

I think you are right, @liz123, that looks exactly like it - and I think I like it EVEN more with such a pretty name!

Thanks @carolgs. Though I hate to disturb the look in my little flowerbed, I think I'm going to bring some in to see how they do as cut flowers.
