Enormous, up to one metre long, elegant terminal sprays of starry, white flowers, like litle exploding fireworks, ripen to huge clusters of globose, purple-black fruits by late summer, after which the foliage take on bronze to purple tints. This statuesque clump-forming perennial with large, bright green, tri-pinnate leaves,is capable of strong growth in rich conditions, where it can form upright stems to 3m tall.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
