4031 Levisticum officionale
A perennial herb with a long history of therapeutic and culinary uses. Also known as “the bouillon cube herb” or “Maggi plant”. The leaves can be used like celery or parsley, the flowers attract beneficial insects, and the seeds taste something like fennel. (It’s said that early New Englanders would keep themselves alert during long church services by chewing on the seeds or candied roots.)Hardy down to Zone 3 and deer-proof! What’s not to love about lovage?
