ANTHRISCUS SYLVESTRIS 'GOLDEN FLEECE'
New! Bright, lemony-yellow, fern-like leaves erupt from the ground in early spring making shining, golden mounds which are resistant to burning by the sun, with sprays of fluffy white flowers opening later. As a rule, except for severe winters, it is evergreen (or evergold) too! Be one of the very first to grow this quite incredible, newly-discovered foliage plant which is a perfect complement to the famous and very popular, dark-leaved form, Anthriscus 'Ravenswing'. This plant comes almost 100% true from seed.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy. Reject green seedlings.
