Glorious, golden, fern like foliage complimented with tall stems of lacy white umbels. Amazing for garden contrast and providing long lasting colour. Masses of white flowers open on tall stems and not only do they look good in the garden they also last well in a vase (as does the foliage).
A garden worthy addition to cottage gardens, or worked in with grasses or meadow plantings.
Anthriscus ‘Golden Fleece’ may self seed, but not at any great rate, it is no bully. You can easily weed out any undesirables, move them around your garden or share them with friends. These plants are short lived perennials so you may want to allow it to self seed, or save it for sowing.
Plant Anthriscus ‘Golden Fleece’ in moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. A full sun to semi shade position works well – if there is too much shade you won’t get good foliage colour. Water to establish, then only if rainfall is low. If you are frost free this plant will remain evergreen, but in cold climates it will quietly disappear and quickly reshoot in spring.
Anthriscus’ is commonly known as Cow Parsley and part of the Araceae family along with the herb Chevril, but is inedible. Other common names are Gypsy Laces and Lady’s Needlework.
