Cenolophium denudatum

 
Cenolophium denudatum
Baltic parsley

Common name Baltic parsley
Family apiaceae
Life cycle perennial?
Flowers white (July-Oct)
Size 28-40"
Light sun

Forms a mound of deeply cut leaves. According to all reports, its umbels of white flowers should arrive in late summer. Somehow, my single seed-grown plant had umbels of immature chartreuse flowers by late May, which started turning white by early and mid June – hardly late summer. This leads me to suspect that I may have in fact something else entirely. Can you help set me straight on what it is?
In any case, it's behaving like a perennial, not only surviving into a third year, but growing bigger and bushier, with many more flowers – as shown by the picture at right.
