(Levisiticum officinalis) Flavorful dark green leaves and yellow flowers, the leaves and seeds are used for flavoring stews, soups, salads, pickling and more. Nice celery taste. The hardy plants can be grown in most of the north.

Review:

Growing 200 miles from Canadian border in a large pot. Left outside last winter with no special care. It was the coldest winter in 20 years with frost down 2 feet. The plant was ready to harvest in April and in bloom by May. Divide plant every few years and share with friends. Use like celery leaves, but the flavor is stronger so a little goes a long way. Can be used in soup stock, stew, casseroles, salad, anywhere you might use celery. Can also be dried or frozen. The roots and seeds are also edible.

Review:

I planted lovage last summer, small plants. They over-wintered wonderfully in zone 3, our ground freezes to 6 1/2 deep, solid as a rock, but plant came back fast, and now in early June a year later, they are already 6 feet tall! I cut off stems and hang them upside down to dry for winter use. Don't dig them up to overwinter them in the house--I don't think they'll like that! Also, just use a little bit in soups, stews, salads, etc., because it is REALLY strong. You can make an herb tea out of it as well. I am planting a perennial garden to ensure foodstuffs without much work, and this plant is a wonderful addition.

The 1st year I had 7 plants, the 2nd year only 1 came back. I like the strong celery taste. Recommend for cooler climates.

Review:

I've had a patch of Lovage going for 30 years up here in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania. I first tried to grow it when I lived in southern Virginia(Norfolk) and it would rarely germinate and when it did it didn't really grow and would die off. Needs that cold. Mine can get up to 10 feet tall if I let the flowers grow. It's a good looking plant for the edible landscape as a background if you keep the flowers cut off; otherwise it gets scraggly looking. Mine is in a spot where it doesn't matter, so the flowers are allowed to grow; which the local beneficial insects appreciate. To me the flavor is more like English, red "cooking" celery..strong and bitter. I do like to chew on a leaf in the morning when I'm walking the dogs; it's supposed to be good for the stomach, and the Amish use it as a breath freshener. Used in moderation when cooking it maintains it's celery-like flavor much better than the standard celery we find here in the US...just don't overdo it.

What are the pros? Bees like the flowers.

What are the cons? Super strong celery taste.

Review:

I must have super lovage because my 3 year old plant is 8 feet tall with green flowers. I am growing it in a protected area with full sun and lots of water. The flowers smell really good and the bees and hornets love them. One plant is way more than what my small family can use. Be careful adding the herb to salads as just a couple of leaves can easily overpower. Spring leaves are much better than late spring. Lovage is extremely easy to grow in zone 5.
