Selinum cryptotaenium - KWJ12281

Sorry this plant is not available at the moment. Please try again later or select an alternative plant.
From seed I collected with Ben Kettle from high up on an open ridge at 3000m, on Fansipan's second peak in northern Vietnam in 2007. From deeply delving roots, stems of filigree purple tinted foliage are held on upright ribbed stems to 30cm tall, terminating in a congested wide umbel of white dark centred flowers in wide flat-topped umbels, transforming to flat dark green contrasting seed backed by white papery bracts. Best grown in good light to part shade in a free drained soil with some moisture retention.
