Selinum wallichianum

(aka Selinum tenuifolium)

These are native to the Himalayas, growing in meadows at altitude. They make fine border plants reaching up to 4ft tall and flowering July to September (October). The white flower heads are set off admirably by the red stems.

We grow this plant in a sunny spot in our free draining loam, but I've seen it growing really well at an NGS garden under the fairly heavy shade of trees, albeit in a damp soil.

Price 4.50 (9cm pot)

Selinum species CC6869

Similar in appearance to the above but without the red stems and early summer flowering.

So nothing like it all really!
