Though both commonly available plants from this genus produce many umbrella-shaped clusters of tiny flowers, they are valued for their fernlike foliage. In one, chervil, the leaves are used in cooking; in the second, the foliage brings deep, striking color to the perennial border.
Low foliage mounds about a foot wide. Flower stems, 1–2 ft. topped with white blossoms in summer. The leaves have a parsley-like flavor with overtones of anise; use like parsley, fresh or dried.
