Anthriscus Golden Fleece or Golden cow parsley, is a clump forming perennial with very attractive fern-like foliage that emerges with a bright yellow or lemony hue, which should not scorch in full sun, a superb plant to brighten any dull area within the garden. The heads of the slightly fluffy white flowers appear during May and June, which compliment the very popular dark leaved form Anthriscus Ravenswing when planted along side each other. Golden Fleece would be the perfect plant for a wild garden planting scheme attracting butterflies and other pollinating insects to the area, and would contrast well with many ornamental grasses.
