Description

My favourite wildflower for when spring turns to summer, a froth of ivory lacy flowers in great powder-puff clouds through the grass and lane-sides. We love the early- emergening foliage as a pot topper with our tulips too, and if you chose late varieties (such as Tulip‘Shirley’ and ‘Blue Parrot’), the cow parsley is a perfect airy filler between.

Care Tips

Cow Parsley looks great as part of a wild flower meadow or informal border, but be careful, it is a prolific self-seeder.
