A denizen of Italy and southeastern Europe, this stately perennial hurls marvelous branching pinkish purple shoots clad with large bipinnate, frosted blue leaves, growing in a triangular fashion. Thick steadfast stems, somewhat channeled at their bases, shoulder a lofty multibranched display of huge yellow-green umbels. Cow Parsley’s big bold presence makes an easy-care choice for the back of the border, a wildflower garden or naturalized meadow.
Size: 5-1/2'–7' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 6.
Peucedanum verticillare (P-1863)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
