'Lady Abbess' is a variety I had never heard of or seen, but I am so thankful to have purchased it. It's leaves have teeth that are small, sharp and closer together than most Dissectums. Plus, it has a Spiritual meaning to me and for me, as it was first grown by Reverend Mother Benedict Duss, who in the late 1940's helped found the first monastery for cloistered Benedictine nuns in, Connecticut, United States. She first planted this variety. I will observe this beautiful variety, photograph it and write about it.
