Black Cow Parsley

15 May

Black Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris ‘Ravenswing’), semi-evergreen, 3-5 feet in height with a 2-3 ft. spread, clumping, large clusters of small creamy white flowers in summer, fine-cut fern-like foliage develops a purple black coloration, full sun to part shade, rich soil, regular water.

Esteemed for its dark coloring, Cow Parsley offers a layered 18 in. mound of luscious, plum-colored, fernlike foliage. In early summer, branched stems produce airy umbels defined by small white flowers and pink bracts. A rich blend of opulent purple leaves can be achieved when you associate this beauty with Aster ‘Lady in Black’ and Berberis ‘Golden Ring’. Keep the blooms trimmed back to ensure an attractive habit.
