Ferula Communis 8-10' Eurasian perennial (USDA Zone 8 and above) of mythic proportions. Said to be the source for Gum Ammonaic-the dried resin from the cut base of the plant burned as incense throughout the ancient mediterranean world. Prometheus was said to have given the gift of fire to humanity stolen from the gods by placing an ember in the pithy wide stalk where it slowly burned during his escape. Good news for us; not so good for Ol' Prometheus if the tales ending is true. This is a spectacular botanical gift for the garden. ~20 seeds.
