This clump-forming, tap-rooted perennial has finely-divided pinnate leaves on erect stems and bears tiny star-shaped white flowers in terminal umbels from mid-summer through fall. Height spread 3-1/2 feet. Suits a wilder garden and mixes well with ornamental grasses. Attracts bees and butterflies.
For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant. Sow seed immediately in containers in a cold frame in autumn and overwinter outdoors for spring germination. If not sowing in autumn, warm/cold stratification is suggested; mix seed with damp vermiculite and warm for 3 weeks, cold for 8 weeks, then sow the mixture. Prick out into deep containers as soon as possible to avoid taproot damage. Grow in moderately-fertile, moist but well-drained soil in full sun or part shade.
