Maybe I should start a new gardeners group called “Umbel-lovers Anonymous”as I know there are others out there just as smitten as I am over flat-topped flower heads! Desirable not only for the touch of lightness they bring to our gardens, but also for how wonderfully magnetic they are to all manner of beneficial insects. Rare, undemanding and long lived, "Baltic Parsley” offers up a long succession of fashionably elegant 5” lacey white flower heads on graceful branching upright red stems from May to September atop attractive, ferny foliage. Providing an interesting and architectural silhouette, 3-4’ tall and 3’ across, this EASY perennial co-mingles beautifully with neighbors and supplies you with plenty of comely cut flowers – fresh or dried. Add compost to your soil for best show and deadhead to keep the blooms coming. A perfect companion for Verbena bonariensis. Deciduous.
