An umbelliferous plant, with very handsome leaves, on account of which only it is noticed here. The foliage is a most beautiful dark green, and most delicately divided into hairlike parts. It is produced in dense rounded tufts about 9 inches high, which have a very handsome appearance in ornamental borders. The flowers are valueless and should be cut away, but the leaves may be employed with excellent taste in introducing a variety of a very pleasing description among gay bedding-plants. It is easily but not rapidly increased by division of the roots.
