|Strong new growth by mid-May of year 3 |
Came highly recommended by a trader. Jelitto rates it hardy only to zone 8, but so far, our two plants have survived two winters in our garden, which (neglecting global warming) is rated zone 6. In its second year, they stayed small and insignificant, looking mostly like feeble carrot plants. But they came into their own in year three, first growing their frilly foliage to a greater stature and volume, and then, in mid-August, displaying their flat umbels of white flowers. Nice plum-colored stalks, too.
||Peucedanum wallichianum; Selinum tenuifolium
|Seed ripens||early November|
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Linda Belcher Florence Gardening Examine||Jul 27, 2009||Is this plant the same as the old Queen Annes Lace? It look similar|
It's in the umbellifer family, just like Queen Anne's lace - but it's different in the details of both flower and foliage.
|Yvonne Carifelle||May 08, 2011||I discovered this plant 3 years ago by my stream in the fern area. I thought it was a fern that had somehow crossbred with another plant. I am in a zone 2 area in Northern Alberta and it has survived 2 winters and spreading. Lovely plant!|
