Monizia edulis (Madeira Giant Carrot)

Monizia edulis (Madeira Giant Carrot)

120 (170)cm, Madeira Giant Carrot makes a stout single, semi-woody stem crowned by a broad rosette of most ornamental large, deeply cut, fern-like, aromatic leaves and a very broad umbel with greenish-white flowers on maturity, after which the plant will die down, leaving numerous seeds. As its botanical name suggests, it is edible and its stout root has formerly been used as a vegetable. It is native of sea cliffs on the island of Madeira (Portugal), where it has become rare for destruction of its habitat. However it has been cultivated as an ornamental foliage plant in gardens. For any humus rich, well drained soil in a partially shaded (summer) to sunny (Winter) spot. In winter keep plants slightly drier at a minimum of some 10°C. An exceptionally beautiful foliage plant! III-VI.
