Plant details

Cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris, is one of the most common native plants, typically found in ditches and meadows around Britain. Its flowers aren't particularly remarkable unless grown en mass, when they appear like white clouds hovering in contrast with clear blue spring skies. Its blooms have a strong, malty scent and are extremely attractive to pollinators.

Grow Anthriscus sylvestris in an informal border, cottage or wildlife garden, or as part of a meadow. It self-seeds readily.
