Description

Taenidia integerrima

Also known as:

yellow pimpernel

,

Scientific Synonyms:

Smyrnium integerrimum

Description

Yellow pimpernel differs from most other members of the Carrot family, for the lack of teeth on its leaflets. Tiny yellow flowers appear at the end of umbellets, themselves at the end of umbels radiating from from the tip of bare stalks. This creates delicate, airy constellations of flowers reaching 7" in diameter.

Cultivation

Preferring light shade, Taenidia integerrima's ability to grow in poor, dry soil, reduces the competition from other plants. Native to prairie, woodland margins and bluffs, yellow pimpernel is well suited for rock-gardens and dry slopes. It blooms from May to July. Zones 4-8

Propagation

Propagate from seed.

Additional Notes

The seeds of this plant have an interesting spicy smell reminiscent of other umbelliferous species such as dill and fennel.
