Chaerophyllum hirsutum ‘Roseum’ has lilac-pink lacy heads, held on short strong stems above the mid green, ferny, feathery, foliage.
Giving a delightful lacy, delicate look to the garden.

Chaerophyllum hirsutum roseum enjoys Full Sun to Part Shade.

This much loved, bone hardy perennial is very slow to increase and is not invasive.
However it can gently self-sow into the garden in places where it is happy.

Hardy perennial.
60cm. High in lacy flower x 45cm. Wide lacy, apple scented foliage.


Suitable for beginners or gardening with kids

Chaerophyllum hirsutum ‘Roseum’ seed can be sown at any time.

Sow indoors for rapid germination & early plants: First sow the seeds in a punnet on the surface of good quality seed raising mix.
Then cover the seed with sieved mix, fine grit or fine river sand to approximately their own depth.

Now place the moist, sown punnet in a well-lit position (not in direct sunlight) in a warm but not hot position.

Temperatures of 5-20 Degrees C. are best for rapid and optimum germination. And higher temperatures may slow germination.

Continue to keep moist by misting from a spray water bottle.

Seeds emerge in approximately 14-30 days, and will probably be staggered in their germination.

If no seeds have emerged in 30 days, then the seeds will benefit from a period of chilling to break their natural dormancy.
So wrap the moist punnet in cling-wrap or a plastic bag.
And place in the fridge (not freezer) for 6 weeks.
Then remove from fridge, unwrap, moisten, and return to the well-lit position.

Seed Count: 8 seeds per pack approx.
(We always aim to exceed the seed count and give a generous serve).
