Peucedanum verticillare

Peucedanum verticillare
One of the absolute best garden umbellifers, making sturdy upright wine-red stems to well over head height, with whorls of good quality angelica-like foliage and heads of greenish umbels.
The new foliage is glossy coppery red.
Peucedanum verticillare
Best in moist soils but adaptable.
Sadly this is a monocarpic species but it seeds about without becoming a problem
