Peucedanum ostruthis ‘Daphnis’



Greater Masterwort or Peuce, is often overlooked but so useful and easy to grow. ‘Daphnis’ has handsome variegated foliage topped with 18-24″ stems bearing umbels of tiny white flowers in late spring/in early summer. It prefers an average to moist soil in partial to full shade, but will take even more sun if area stays moist. We know it to be hardy in zones 5-9, but it may in fact prove even more cold tolerant. It is an attractive foil for Ferns, Hakonechloa macra or dark green Hosta.
