    ANGELICA "HUGH JUMBLE"

    High on hot rocky hillsides on the island of Malta grow these impressive and unusual giants. When we first encountered these members of the 'umbelliferae' family, to which cow parsley, angelica, and similar plants belong, a friend remarked that compared to their relatively medium height, they had astonishingly huge umbels (or "heads") of seeds! We tried to identify them without success, and we thought they resembled an angelica, so the temporary name stuck! Angelica "Huge Umbel" (Hugh Jumble). And they also produced the most enormous seeds of any plant in this family we have ever seen, and we cultivate a very large number of the umbelliferae family here. Grown here in Devon, they make impressive plants, and amusing and intriguing dried flowers too! Please let us know if you can name them......Please note they are not edible. ... Learn More

    ANTIRRHINUM TORTUOSUM

    Sizeable, deepest pink "snapdragon" flowers open over a prolonged period in spring and summer on this scarce plant. It is strictly speaking a perennial, when it will ultimately make a thick-stemmed shrub clad in thin pointed leaves, but does very well grown as an annual. It grows in wild rocky places from the Rif Mountains of Morocco to Malta, where it can sometimes be seen as a dazzling patch on mountain roadsides and clifftops, but is very rarely seen in cultivation. ...
