Jérusalem or Malta Cross flower


These seeds came from my dear mother in-law Ginette Pélissier who took it from her mothers Clémence Chouinard’s garden years before.  I was gifted the very same plant when she sold her house and no longer could care for the plant.  It has been a very generous plant that seems to grow really well in full sun as well as half shade.  The flower has its history steeped in religion and the Middle East.
