Chaerophyllum hirsutum roseum
Chaerophyllum species are upright plants with attractive, fern-like foliage and compound umbels of small white, pink or yellow flowers well suited to the wild garden or border. It is a member of the Apiaceae family which also includes cumin, parsley, anise, carrot, coriander/cilantro, dill, caraway, fennel, parsnip, celery and cow parsley. Native to Spain and France and as far as south west Russia, this is an upright, hairy perennial, producing 2 or 3 pinnate, apple scented mid-green, sometimes purple flushed leaves, 12 – 30cm long, with ovate to heart shaped, toothed leaflets. Chaerophyllum hirsutum roseum, sometimes referred to as ‘Hairy Chervil' has umbels of soft pink flowers 6cm across borne from late spring to midsummer. The umbel shaped flowers, and the clear soft-pink colour is an attractive choice for mixed borders. It blooms in mid-spring along with the late Euphorbia species which are a great complement and it is very low maintenance. Requiring full sun and good drainage, it will produce weeks of colour. The flowers hover above the leaves giving this perennial a light airy look. The fern like foliage has an apple fragrance when cut and looks very pleasing, even when not in bloom. Height 60cm. Spread 30-45cm.
