Mediterranean native to 2 ft. tall, 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, confections.
