Candidissimum and other stuff

Sylvia - I haven't had much trouble with critters destroying seed heads,
so can't give any particular advice on that.  I suppose that if it became
a problem you could enclose the seedhead (which you want to leave on the
plant until it ripens) in a fine mesh bag (i.e. an old stocking).

My own candidissimums did remarkably badly at setting seed; I only find a
single fertile seedhead among the twenty-odd mature (female) plants.  I
wonder what normally pollinates them?
