About this cultivar:
Chaerophyllum hirsutum ‘Roseum’ is a perennial cultivar with beautiful apple-scented, ferny foliage that emerges in early spring and looks great through the growing season. Soon after the leaves sprout in the spring, pale rosy-pink flowers bloom well above the foliage. The delicate flowers have a wonderful lacey quality and are reminiscent of a soft pink Queen Anne’s lace or pink cow parsley.

About this genus:
Chaerophyllum is a genus of flowering plant in the umbellifer family (aka celery, parsely or carrot - Apiaceae or Umbelliferae to be scientific), with 35 species native to Europe, Asia, North America, and northern Africa. They are tap-rooted perennials with fern-like, finely divided leaves and umbels of small white or pink flowers.
These are great plants for any situation or soil as long as it is not to dry or sitting in a puddle.
They have a vary natural look and feel; their delicate seed heads always move about beautifully in the wind. This allows them to be paired with virtually any other plant in the garden; it has a wild feel like cow parsley but also a semi-formal-pottager feel because of its close relation to different vegetables. A great choice for softening parts of the garden.
