Ferula communis ‘Gigantea’
This is the giant cow parsley of the Southern European garrigue. During late winter it produces a mound of intricately cut lacy leaves some 90cm across by 90cm tall. During spring a strong shoot, like a thick asparagus spear, pushes through the centre of the foliage mound and soon makes a two metre tall stem carrying dozens of 15cm wide umbrellas of sulphur yellow flowers. After flowering the whole dies to the ground as if it was a spring flowered summer dormant bulb. Best in a sunny spot.
