Thanks. Mine is not it, as the flowers are definitely all white.

I think Iíve got this one, but it has not flowered this year...  itís in recovery having been swamped by a vigorous pulsatilla.  The latter was removed last year.  Next time it flowers Iíll take a photo, but it definitely had red spots on each sepal....

So is this Spotty Cotty?


And any idea as to this one which I had labelled as Spotty.

Quite possibly is. Just dodged a shower and took a photo of mine, or what I think I got with that name.  Foliage looks a bit different, but it does have one miserable flower on it, fwiw...

We think that the pure white one is a form of S. cotyledon, but there are dozens of them, all very similar.
