Pot Size: 3 litre
Description: What a great plant to kick off our collecting in the eastern Himalayas in the autumn of 2013. We could hardly believe our eyes when we first saw the sturdy upright stems to at least 2m (recorded up to 3.5m) tall. Topped by one of the widest umbells I can remember seeing, composed of several 30cm wide umbells, which would have flowered a yellow-green July to September, resulting in the flat rounded seed we were collecting. The basal leaves, which were dormant at that time, are recorded as being 1m wide ovate in outline, 3-pinnately divided lobed and serrated, with conspicuously large petiole wings, more so on the upper leaves. Easily grown in any type of drained fertile soil in sun or part shade. Yet to be seen how perennial this species remains in cultivation.
