Selinum wallichianum originates from the Himalayas where it grows on open, sunny slopes. Commonly known as Wallich Milk Parsley, it is a reliable and long-lived plant. In the UK it is often used in the borders of gardens.
S. wallichianum has large, triangular leaves. From July and all the way into autumn, it bears broad umbels of white flowers, above its delicate, fern-like foliage. When autumn rolls in and the flowers fade, they transform into beautiful seed heads. Many gardeners choose to leave the seed heads on to add an element of interest to their autumn garden. It is best to grow Wallich Milk Parsley in moderately fertile soil in full sun or partial shade. In early spring, this plant would benefit from some well-rotted compost around its base and from then on it only requires average watering.
These plants are safe to have around pets and babies. Unfortunately, slugs and snails could cause issues for your S. wallichianum.
