Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Raven’s Wing’

Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Raven’s Wing’

My favorite perennial for providing color & textural contrast! Give it a place in your garden & watch how neighboring plants pop into glowing focus! Tough as nails, long lived (easily 5+ years) & gorgeous all season long, it’s actually a black variety of wild chervil & the leaves are edible. Rich purpley-black, densely held, feathery foliage forms a dense clump, 16” high & 24” wide. Small white flower umbels on 3’ stems in Summer can be cut off or allowed to self-sow for more plants. Adaptable & versatile, it can also be used for dressing up the base of roses & taller shrubs.  Cut back to 6” tall in Winter. Tolerates sand, clay, periodic drought & it’s deer resistant!
