In season: umbellifers

11 images

From feathery dill to lacy cow parsley, we find umbellifers are perfect for creating suggestions of a wilder landscape and attracting butterflies and other insects to your garden.

The Umbelliferae are a family of mostly aromatic plants with hollow stems. A harbinger of summer, umbellifers were once only seen in potagers and meadows, but the disc-shaped heads of these hollow-stemmed, aromatic plants are increasingly being used to add depth and interest to garden borders.
