Himalayan Parsley

Selinum tenifolium

An extremely long-lived, attractive, clumping perennial, reaching a maximum size of 6 x 2 feet, that is native to the Himalayas. It is related to Cow-Parsley and resembles it in appearance.
This is not the same as the garden parsley that is often eaten.
The extremely fine-textured, dissected foliage is deep green.
The lovely, large lacy white flower heads, up to 3 inches wide, are an added attraction. They are borne mid-summer to early autumn.
Thrives on moist fertile soil.
Hardy zones 4 to 8 in full sun to partial shade on moist, well drained soil.

Selinum wallichianum
A perennial, reaching up to 6 feet. Full text coming soon.
