Seseli gummiferum


This interesting accent plant goes by the common name of moon carrot. It is a pollinator magnet and, though not a native itself, is a host for the larvae of the eastern swallowtail butterfly. It has flat-topped clusters of white flowers.

This plant needs to be grown in a deeper media profile than most plants we provide, preferably a minimum of 6-8″.
