Fabulous, an umbellifer!
Native to the high grasslands of the Himalayas (West Pakistan, India) Selinum wallichianum is one of the most beautiful garden umbellifers with its erect, reddish-brown stems, intricately-divided leaves and wide umbels with tiny pure white flowers.
Towering majestically to 1.5 metres hight, Selinum wallichianum is a superb companion to other tall-stemmed, moisture loving varieties (Thalictrum, Vernonia) or plants with flowering spikes (Aconitum, Acanthus spinosus, Veronicastrum).
For a charming duo, try planting the ethereal umbels of Selinum to contrast with the martial spires of Aconitum 'Newry Blue'!
Grow in the sun or partial shade in good, moist, fertile, well-drained garden soil, which is slightly acid to neutral.
Maintenance: prune the inflorescences and remove dead leaves in the autumn. Very hardy.
In dry conditions, Selinum wallichianum may be prone to powdery mildew. So, please remember to plant it in the best growing conditions.
