Buy Pimpinella major 'Rosea' pimpinella: Airy pink flowerheads. Wonderful in a meadow setting.

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or light shade
  • Soil: tolerates most, but prefers reliably moist but not waterlogged soils
  • 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 unencumbered by foliage. This perennial prefers a sunny position in a freely draining soil where it may happily naturalise and set seed.

  • Garden care: Divide congested plants in spring or autumn. Leave flower spikes to mature and self-seed to expand the group.
