A perennial pink cow parsley!  Clumps of fine cut fresh green leaves and heads of soft pink flowers to 75cm in summer.  Good soil in sun or light shade.

A little more refined than the "other" pink cow parsley, Chaerophyllum hirsutum 'Roseum' though neither are actually cow parsley which is Anthriscus sylvestris!

Pimpinella major 'Rosea' makes a lovely addition to a spring woodland border where it will carry on interest later into summer than the typical primula and pulmonaria that might be there too.  The only requirement is a reasonably good soil that doesn't dry out too much.

Sometimes confused with the Chaerophyllum but easy to tell apart as the Pimpinella is more tightly rosette forming and has somewhat glossy leaves whereas the Chaerophyllum tends to wander a little and has hairy stems and leaves.

Native to Europe, but not normally found in this pink form.  Common name not often used but it is Greater Burnet Saxifrage!
