Anthriscus sylvestris 'Moonlit Night'

Anthriscus sylvestris 'Moonlit Night'

black chervil, cow parsley

Common name black chervil, cow parsley
Family apiaceae
Life cycle biennial/perennial
Flowers white (late spring)
Size 24-30"
Light sun-part shade

Similar to its cousin cultivar 'Ravenswing', which is more commonly available. Both have neatly cut dark plum foliage, and umbels of white flowers. We managed to sprout just a single seedling last year, so I'm glad that it at least survived to strut its stuff this year.

Anthriscus sylvestris 'Moonlit Night'
The flowers are just OK - white and airy

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
