Umbeliferous plants (ones that produce flowers that radiate from the top of a single stem and look like giant starbursts) are really in demand now, and this is one of the best. The clusters of soft pink flowers appear in late spring and early summer and top the spreading mounds of deeply divided foliage, which has a distict fern-like appearance. The leaves are slightly hairy, have a delicious, apple scent and are sometimes flushed with purple. In the wild, the species can be found in hedgerows, open woodland and meadows from Spain to Russia.
- Garden care: Cut back tatty foliage to neaten it up and apply a generous layer of mulch around the roots in the autumn.
