Peucedanum verticillare

Current Stock:
Magnify a flat-leaf parsley by about a factor of 5, and you more or less have this magnificent perennial, which exists for its first two or three seasons as a large non-flowering clump of lush dissected leaves that make a striking foliar accent in sunny borders and cottage gardens. Then, in late spring of a year of its choosing, it brings forth several majestic purple flowering stems that ascend to 5 feet or more and terminate in huge umbels of pale chartreuse flowers like a seriously oversized fennel. Then it expires (so save some seed!). Remarkable. We love peucedanums! Zone 5. Propagated from seed. Deep 3.5-inch pots. Photo: peganum, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0
