Myrrhis odorata

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 60cm (24in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: May to July



Sweet Cicely, fully deciduous. In Spring it produces beautiful soft, hairy, pale green leaves, and then later small heads of cow parsley type flowers. Brushing past it releases the sweet aniseed scent, and it's often used in the preparation of stewed fruit to reduce the amount of sugar needed. A must for the herb or wild garden.

Grows well in dry shade, though best with semi-shade.
