Selinum cryptotaenium - FMWJ13250

Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Price: £15.00
From deeply delving branched taproots 2-3 cm thick, erect stems branch above encased in purplish inflated sheaths. The petioles 10-20 cm long carry filigree purple tinted foliage and congested wide umbels 8-10 cm across of white pink in bud, dark centred flowers in wide flat-topped umbels July-August. Expanding in fruit to 20cm across transforming to flat dark green contrasting seed backed by white papery bracts, by September-October. From seed collected by my companions, Aaron Floden and Tom Mitchell from high up on an open ridge at 3000m, on Fansipan's second peak in northern Vietnam in 2011. Best grown in good light to part shade in a free drained soil with some moisture retention.
