This is an unusual, low, spreading, bushy plant, grown mainly for its colourful foliage which is like that of celery, but with cream and pink edges. The flowers resemble those of wild cow parsley the large heads of tiny blooms, off-white and individually insignificant, appear spasmodically through the summer. It is a very useful plant for giving background to a shady, damp border where other few plants thrive well. In a sunny wet border, grow it as ground cover beneath tall sun-loving plants.

Should come with a health warning! 'Fast growing' doesn't begin to describe this. Yes, it's very pretty and in a 3" pot, it looks very delicate -a little like maidenhair fern. In reality it's a triffid in disguise - don't turn your back on it.
