(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.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, perennial zone 6

What are the cons? So strong late in season

Review:

I think I read that this was a salad herb. I've had it ruin salad with a strong bitterness. I think it may be best cooked or even as a bouquet garni... and removed before serving. Mine did get huge, probably 4 ft high and put out lots of seed. The flowers are more green than yellow .. unique. I did buy it as a plant and it comes back without any coddling. As stated, gives a celery flavor.

Review:

Lovage once it is established in your garden will grow four feet high. Cut it back taking the leaves and stems, which become thick and hollow. Blend the takings with canola oil and let it drip through a coffee filter for two days and you will have lovage oil with which you can make lovage mayonnaise. It is so good that it will revivify your marriage. Equally you can make lovage pesto using a small amount of oil and some chicken stock and powdered almonds if you like, or not. Try a small dollop in your tomato soup or atop a scallop. The flavor is super celery, bright and fresh. The plant is vigorous and two plants will supply all your needs unless you are supplying a restaurant then six ought to do it. I want to plant some in a cold frame so I can harvest into November. The first year I grew it, I moved it into my bedroom in a pot as frost approached, so I would never be without it. Alas the aphids thrived in the warm atmosphere and took it down, but it affords you some idea how excited I was by the taste.

Review:

Hi, Iive in Las Vegas, I got Lovage in 2010, I'm from Romania and I was very happy to find it, because in US, this plant is under appreciated... In Romania is the second herb in the kitchen ( on the first place is parsley and third is dill weed).Lovage is full of antioxidants and iron, and is going perfect whith soups and recipes with ground meat.To be sure the plant will grow, I have plant it in 7 different spots around the house, and 6 of them are good, I also plant some of the seeds in fall and some in early and late spring, the fall ones are the biggest, then the ones I planted in early spring are OK, and the one in late spring are just out, but they are good also.I grow up with this herb, and my father always looked years younger than his age (he was 61 when he died from lung cancer and he looked on early forty's).. he used to say to me" the ingredient for his youth was Lovage", always in our kitchen and always fresh.

Review:

Easy growing plant looks a little like flat leaf parsley. The celery flavor is fantastic. I used it so much I moved it from the garden to my patio. I would snip some and use it in fried potatoes, eggs, potato soup, salad, veggie soup stock, even in some salsa. The flavor got stronger late in the season. You might start with a little and add to taste as you go, so it doesn't over power your dish.
