detailed seed-starting info below

Similar to the main species, with more incised and less hairy leaves, and sparser flower umbels. From the photo of the seedlings here, it's obvious that at least the youngest leaves are still soft-hairy, and not particularly incised. We'll see how it develops...

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