Molopospermum peloponnesiacum

Molopospermum peloponnesiacum
What a brilliant name!  
A very good-looking medium sized umbellifer with jagged cut glossy green foliage and creamy umbells turning lime green - a very nice contrast. Absolutely not at all "yet another bloody hog-weed" and not even slightly coarse or invasive.
Molopospermum peloponnesiacum
The new growth. To me this is one of those plants that is always worth looking at.
Although southern European in origin this plant is best kept not too hot or dry and does well in light woodland.
3L pots ~ £10
