Baltic parsley

C. denudatum is a fast-growing, semi-evergreen, clump-forming umbellifer, the stock thickened with the fibrous remains of previous stem growth. Growing 60-150cm tall, the sometimes purple flowering stems rise from abundant very finely-divided dark green leaves, and bear many flat umbels of greenish-white flowers in summer and autumn. Attractive to insects
