Bupleurum - Hare's Ear
Bupleurum was first popularized in Victorian cutting gardens and has continued on as a staple in modern floral artistry, both as a filler flower and green foliage. Also known as Hare's Ear or Thoroughwax, the yellow-lime green flowers are 2" to 2.5" inches and rest atop wiry, spry stems. Bupleurum is used both fresh and dried in bouquets and arrangements. This plant's height of 24" to 36" inches and the bright chartreuse color can add exceptional visual interest to flower beds and borders in the garden. Easy to grow, this cold hardy annual can self seed in warmer climates. For strong erect stems for cut flower use, staking or corralling is recommended.
