Could anyone assist with locating a variety of cow parsley that has purple flowers?

    The only one of which I know is Anthriscus sylvestris 'Ravenswing'

    There is certainly a cow parsley relative which has pink flowers and is called Pimpinela. There is also a cow parsley with purple leaves which is Anthrisus Sylvestris Ravenswing.

    I've seen the needle and the damage done
    A little part of it in everyone

    I may be wrong but I think Ravenswing has white flowers but purple leaves

    There is a lovely dark pink one that grows wild in the hedgerow by me.

    I was thinking of digging a bit out but wonder if it would take over in the garden.

    Thanks for your responses, after a bit more scouting I discovered it was actually Angelica Gigas I was looking for! image

    That's a good one Steve. Insects love it. needs cold germination but you should be able to buy a plant to start you off.
