Chaerophyllum Hirsutum Roseum

Bright pink heads on short stems, with ferny, feathery foliage, make this exceptionally compact umbellifer a must for the front of a choice border. It is very slow to spread and certainly not invasive, as well as being bone hardy. As a bonus, the entire plant smells of apples! "To be sought, few herbaceous plants can hold a candle to it in early May." (Graham Stuart Thomas)

Sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost, and cover with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and although germination can be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees c, we sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. However, spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth.
