Found in a cottage garden in Truro, Cornwall in about 1800 and in 1813  brought to the attention of the Royal Horticultural Society by Sir Christopher Hawkins, who was awarded a silver medal "for his exertions".

Very popular in its day. The word 'gilliflower' is possibly a corruption of a French word girofle meaning clove, believed to be a reference to its odour when cut.
