Plant of the Week: Smyrnium perfoliatum

This is a beautiful spring flowering biennial which can be difficult to establish but when it does so you are never without it, yet it is in no way an over-powering thug. The whole plant is a glorious acid green/yellow which lights up any area especially a shady area although it just as happy in the sun ( in this photograph taken in my garden its facing  south) Smyrnium is also very useful for flower arranging.
