Anthriscus sylvestris, known as cow parsley, wild chervil, wild beaked parsley, or keck, Cow parsley grows in sunny to semi-shaded locations in meadows and at the edges of hedgerows and woodland. It is a particularly familiar sight along roadsides and roadside verges. Cows parsley is considered to be edible, though having a somewhat unpleasant flavour, sharper than garden chervil, with a hint of wild carrots, to which it is related and part of the carrot family. Both the Leaves and white flowers can be made into green dye. Be careful as cow parsley can also resemble quite closely giant hogweed, which is a poisonous plant. Flowers late spring to mid summer with compound umbels of white flowers/frothy flowers.

Buy as common cow parsley seeds, plugs or plants.
