Hands down one of the most versatile and productive early season foliage plants you can grow. Its bright chartreuse green umbels combine with nearly every color palette and are perfect for mixed bouquets. Easily mistaken for bupleurum but has a much longer flowering window and lasts forever in the vase. A must-grow!

How to Grow:
Sow seed indoors in trays 6-8 weeks before last frost and plant out while the weather is still cool.
