Surely one of the prettiest umbellifers around, Chaerophyllum hirsutum 'Roseum' puts on a wonderfully airy display in early summer with its clusters of sugar pink flowers that glow against its finely cut fresh green scented foliage.
Whenever it is on our stand at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show it attracts attention from both designers and the public alike, neatly slotting into the ever popular naturalistic trend. An obvious candidate for any cottage or informal style garden, why not translate its native hedgerow setting to your walled courtyard for a sophisticated yet natural vibe. It grows best in a rich, well-drained soil with some moisture in either sun or partial shade.
