Pimpinella major 'Rosea'
Gives an informal meadow-like air to mixed plantings
- Position: full sun or light shade
- Soil:well drained soil
- Rate of growth:average
- Flowering period:May-June
- Hardiness: fully hardy
An unusual plant which adds a loose informality to early summer plantings. Flat heads of tiny flowers, like a deep pink cow parsley or Queen Anne's Lace are held on stiff, wiry stems, where they will attract passing bees and butterflies. The leaves, which are long and finely cut, grow from the base of the plant, so that the airy flowerheads are unecumbered by foliage. This perennial prefers a sunny position in a freely draining soil where it may happily naturalise and set seed.
- Garden care: Dislikes a waterlogged soil. Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Leave flower spikes to mature and self-seed to expand the group.
