Description
 
We were gifted this little green "roller" from John Grimshaw, Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard.  As he handed us a nondescript pup, we wondered what magical thing attended this to earn a place in his exquisite collection.  "This is from the garden of Carl Linnaeus"  STFU! The Father of Binomial Nomenclature!?!  Linnaeus & Grimshaw - now that's provenance!  Plant geek manna from botanical heaven.  This is possibly Jovibarba globifera subsp. allionii.
