Sweet aromatic undertones

With a complex flavor somewhere between celery and parsley.

The root is used as substitute for Dong Quai. The leaves are terrific in burgers and spaghetti sauce!

 Easy to grow in garden soil. Likes full sun & plenty of water. May self-sow. Sow from spring to late-summer. Roots may be used medicinally.
Great flavor for soups, stews, in ground meat, fish and pasta sauces.
BOTANICAL NAME: Levisticum officnale


Start seeds in flats or in place in the fall or very early spring. (Fall-planted seed will sprout the next spring. In summer, sprouting will be improved by refrigerating the seed in damp soil for 2 weeks.) Transplant 3' apart into moist, rich soil in a permanent location. Perennial zones 4-8. Height up to 6'. Leaves and stems used like celery in soups, pasta sauces, and as seasoning. Roots used as a women's herb, with the same uses and preparation as Dong Quai.

This is a must-have in the herb garden! Europeans also refer to it as the Maggi Plant because its taste is very similar to that seasoning. Best in stews, soups, sauces and other hot dishes which are usually NOT prepared in summer heat, so freeze the leaves and stems for cool-weather cooking. Just a little bit imparts lots of flavor in your dishes! One plant will die to the ground in fall & return year after year in Z3a or higher. Looks gorgeous in the herb garden with its large hand-sized, multi-lobed leaves - place in mid to back of border because of its height
