Bupleurum fruticosum - close-up

By Andrewr


Bupleurum fruticosum - close-up (Bupleurum fruticosum)

The only shrub with umbelliferous flowers. Initially upright to six feet or so, it gets middle age spread as it gets older (although it will take a hard pruning). Supposedly for full sun in a sheltered spot, I first saw this growing in an open position in Northamptonshire. I've found a few seedlings around the mother plant but they all died when moved

The grey-green leaves just under the flowers are the foliage of this plant.
Umbelliferous means all the stems for the flowers spring from one point (like the spokes of an umbrella)

Nice looking plant, I like the leaf color and structure, along with the unusual looking flower heads. I'll have to do some research on this one for sure ~!
