So does John Blanchard. Collected by Basil Leng in northern Spain (nr. Ribalden) & cultivated by Sir Cedric Morris for several years. Hence the name. Apparently Basil Leng revisited the site some years later but found all the plants had disappeared as a result of road widening.
Gerry passed away  at home  on 25th February 2021 - his posts are  left  in the  forum in memory of him.
His was a long life - lived well.
