ANGELICA SYLVESTRIS 'EBONY'
This fabulous new bee and butterfly plant is the darkest of any angelica we have ever grown. Exquisite, almost black, finely-cut shiny leaves are held below heads of darkest purple buds opening to delicate sprays of pink flowers. This plant caused mayhem when originally shown at Chelsea and comes satisfyingly true from seed, although the odd seedling may have less intensely-coloured foliage. It is important to wait for full development of the plant to obtain darkest pigmentation. Very few fertile seeds are ever collected.
COVER WITH COMPOST OR GRIT 5mm. DEEP. SOW IN GENTLE HEAT IN DAYLIGHT AND KEEP MOIST. GROW ON INDIVIDUAL SEEDLINGS IN 3" POTS. PLANT OUT IN A WELL-DRAINED OPEN POSITION.
