Peucedanum ostruthium “Daphnis”-Variegated Peuce Materwort

I am not familiar with this plant and because of that I could not find anything on propagating other then by seed, stratification of 4 weeks, however because the plant forms a clump you might try dividing it in the spring, but since it is a native of France, it will not be easy. The plant itself is poisonous and will cause skin irritation so wearing gloves and long sleeve shirts when gardening around it is necessary. It is also very fragrant and its flower resembles Queen-Anne’s Lace that bloom through early to mid summer and will reach a height of 24". The plant prefers a partial or full shade exposure with a moist well draining soil and is hardy in Zones 5-9.
