A vigorous European species that was grow by John Gerard in his London garden as he recorded in the first (1597)
edition of the Herbal. He says:
"It groweth in the moist meadowes of Italie about Bononia and Vincentia: it groweth in my garden.
It flowreth in April and May when it hath taken fast hold, and settled it selfe in the earth a yeere before.
