Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: July.
Type: Type: Europe (LINN 516/1).
Distribution: Distribution: Widely distributed in Europe, N. & C. Asia, N. America.
Comment/Acknowledgements: The species has not yet been recorded from Pakistan, but is to be expected from parts of Azad Kashmir adjoining the Pir Panjal range. Clarke on the basis of the number of cauline leaves (1) and occasionally 6-merous flowers, considers the Himalayan plant to be of varietal rank (i.e. var. inodora). Apart from the non-odorous flowers, the other two characters are variable in the specimens examined.
