Use in place or Orlaya grandiflora (laceflower) depicted at present


Torilis japonica - Upright Hedge Parsley is a branching annual or biennial with jaggedly divided leaves present through winter and white flowers ,occasionally with a hint of pink, in flattish umbels, giving a lacy effect. Floriferous, long-flowering and attractive to insects. Grow in a sunny or shady position in well-drained or poor soil. No pruning.


  • but deadhead or cut down flowers when finished if you don't want seeding. We have grown these as a follow on native umbellifer after the cow parsley has gone over.It is as pretty as its earlier relative ,usually smaller and daintier - only around 50 cms if growing in grass a little taller in a bed unless Chelsea chopped and opening in July and August. Could be invaluable for producing the airy light effect desired in flowery meadow plantings and likely to be more self sustaining in this role than the well known Orlaya grandiflora and Ammi majus which don,t self seed with us.
