Pot Size: 4 litre (deep)
Description: From our trek down towards Topke Khola with Dan Hinkley in Eastern Nepal in 2002, at 3800m. A perennial species to 1.5m tall in gardens, but only 1m where we collected it. Arising from deeply delving roots, forming upright ribbed dark purple to green stems with alternate branches of finely divided foliage. Terminating in congested umbels by mid summer of white flowers in wide flat-topped umbels subtended by long slender white-margined papery bracts. Soon followed by flat dark green contrasting seed by late August. Easily grown in either full sun or part shade in a deep freely drained soil with some moisture retention.
