perennial herb grows to fifty inches tall and has beautiful clusters of
yellow flowers. Over the centuries it has been used as both a medicinal and culinary herb.
The seeds are aromatic and used in cakes. Its leafstalks and stems can be blanched and used like celery in soups and salads. It is also used to flavor confections and an old English cordial, also called "Lovage."
The flowers are perfect (having both male and female organs), are insect pollinated, and self-fertile. The plants flower from July into August with seed ripening from August into September.
Lovage is not tender and is a hardy perennial down to USDA zone 4. Each packet contains 0.25 gram, which is approximately 75 seeds.
