About this cultivar:

Cenolophium denudatum is a species of flowering plant in the carrot family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae), native to Europe and Asia. It is the only member of its genus, its common name being Baltic parsley. The latin name comes from keno (empty) and lophos (a crest), referring to the fruit being empty inside.

A herbaceous perennial, with dark green divided leaves and, in spring and summer, many umbels of tiny pale green or white flowers on branching naked stems (hence the Latin specific name denudatum, which means bare or naked). Much like a perennial cow parsley. The stems are sometimes purple in colour. The flowers are attractive to numerous insects, as well as gardeners (Homo horticultus).

Sometimes known as the Chelsea cow parsley for its ability to flower during Chelsea week. Unfortunately, this means it is a trendy plant…ugh…. but don’t blame the plant. It is lovely, great for naturalising (ugh trendy), likes a cool spot and is just as lovely in fresh green bud as in flower. Will do well in most soils.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit, confirmed 2017).…imagine that, the WHOLE genus has an AGM!
