Pimpinella anisum

Anise
Apiaceae (Umbelliferae)
Annuals, Herbs

Mediterranean native to 2 ft. tall and 1 1/2 ft. wide. First growth produces a clump of bright green, roundish to heart-shaped, tooth-edged leaves. Foliage clumps send up stems set with feathery leaves; in summer, bear umbrella-like clusters of tiny white flowers at stem tips. Use fresh leaves in salads; use seeds (which appear after about 4 months of growth) for flavoring baked goods and confections.
